Product information "Lindy Fralin P90 Dogear Shim 0,100" / 2,5 mm"

The purpose of a Dogear Shim is to help raise the pickup to it’s ideal height. Since Dogears are Fixed-height pickups, this is the only way to get around it. Sure, P90’s have adjustable pole pieces, but, those are for micro-fine-tuning the string-to-string balance, not adjusting the entire pickup. Let’s dig into how we can measure for Shims, if you need one (or two)! We have three shim sizes available:

Available dimensions:

  • 0.0626 (1/16) (1.6mm)

  • 0.1 (~7/64) (2.5mm)

  • 0.225 (~7/32) (5.7mm)

HOW TO MEASURE SHIM SPACING:

Before we talk about Shims, let’s get into pickup height. The ideal pickup height is 1/16 (0.06, 1.6mm) from the top of the pole piece, to the bottom of the string- when pushed down at the highest fret. You only have to do this on the Low E and High E string. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Have a ruler handy, and push your low E string down at the highest fret

  2. Measure the distance from the top of the pole piece to the bottom of the string

  3. Ideal height should be 1/16

  4. Repeat this on the High E String

STANDARD DOGEAR SHIM SPACING:

Since the cover of a Standard Dogear is 7/16 High, and you need 1/16 String Clearance, you need 1/2 from the bottom of the string to the top of the guitar for ideal dogear height.

If you measure taller than that, and you need a shim. Simply take the difference and install!

For example, if you take the measurement, and you measure 9/16, you’ll need a 1/16 Shim.
