    St. Vincent bridge pickup adjustment?

    I recently picked up a St. Vincent, the standard model with three mini-hums. The bridge pickup is farther from the strings than others I've played (double checked @GC yesterday), which results in that pickup being too weak to compete with the other two. I lowered the neck and middle pickups to match outputs, but they are close to flush with the pickguard and don't sound quite as good.

    Is there some way of adjusting the height of the bridge pickup? I haven't taken anything apart yet, perhaps there is an obvious adjustment I am missing.

    Hi, I just put some money down on a HHH St. Vincent at GC and I noticed a similar issue. The bridge pickup output is very low. Were you able to solve this or did customer service come up with a solution?

    Aren't there screws on either side of the bridge pickup? Those usually would have springs under them, which allow you to loosen them and raise the bridge pickup.
