Help with Albert Lee SSS pick up height please

Hi folks

I recently bought what turns out to be a 2002 hardtail AL sss. The body, the neck in absolute mint shape. I could not be happier. More than makes up for lack of compensated nut…

When I took it off the wall at the store, the guitar’s neck and middle pick ups were flush to the body. The bridge PU was significantly higher than that.

I raised the two flush PUs a bit, and will keep on experimenting, but I was wondering what the factory spec height might be.

I might not have the ear training to notice any magnet interference if I raise them too high.

If it makes any difference, I am using D’Addario NYXL 10-46 strings, with medium to medium high action.

I have a D’Addatio action gauge measure I can use.

Thanks for any info.
