    Cutlass bass setup tech question

    Hello all.
    So, I have a new Cutlass bass in diamond blue on the way. I am super psyched, and I can't wait for it to arrive.
    In the meantime I have been trying to find any and all info on it.
    I have a tech question regarding setup.
    My question is about the Cutlass bass specifically.

    Can someone please give me the factory recommended pickup heights for this bass?

    I have seen the FAQ page with bass setup guidelines on the musicman website.
    I have referred to it in the past setting up a sterling H and a stingray HH. I was very happy with the results. The recommended pickup heights are spot on but I see no mention of the split pickup spec.


    Any info is greatly appreciated
    Thank you

    Ps
    Does anyone know if the pickup pole magnets are alnico or ceramic?

    Thanks for the tip.
    Emailed them and already got a reply.
    Ernie Ball Musicman Customer Service is the absolute best!

    I'll go ahead and share the info here fo anyone else who might want to know.


    This is the response from musicman customer service:
    " The Cutlass Bass pickups are set in factory to measure 5/32" from the top of the pickup to the bottom of the outer strings (E & G) & 6/32" from the top of the pickup to the bottom of the inner strings (A & D). We'll get with our web team to update the FAQ."
