I changed the pickup to Noiseless gen4 and they are too high. I can't lower them any lower, and I think they would sound better lowering them about 2mm more. I have to mill holes in wood. Anyone else having this problem in VM?
Noiseless pickups are taller, since they are stacked coils, but I've never had that problem in any Strat, with Fender, Dimarzio, and Bill Lawrence stacks. Are you using rubber tubing or the conical shaped springs for adjustment on the screws? I've found that a lot of times the tubing isn't long enough, especially with a taller stack pickup, and so you can't adjust the pickups lower when using it, but it's just fine when using the springs instead.I changed the pickup to Noiseless gen4 and they are too high.

screws here do not interfere, only the depth of the poolsI have had that problem with some Tele's! Just drill down 1/4" or use shorter screws.
ok, I've never seen that before, but I never tried a noiseless in a VM, but I have in a CV, and didn't have that problem from what I recall. Ultimately, I gave up on noiseless pickups, because even the best of them rob the sound of some highs compared to a real SC, except the Lawrence L250, which isn't trying to be a copy of a SC, but is its own beast, with a lot of highs, and a very clear and bright almost hi-fi sound, but it doesn't sound like a vintage Strat pickup.clearly it does not go down, the screw goes up, and I can't even push the pickup down with my finger. The VM has shallow openings
