My SC90 has two short pickup mounting rings for front and back pickups. I am going to install a PAF repro and am wondering if I should buy the same height rings for the new pickup. Reason I ask is that I noticed Les Pauls use a tall one for the bridge pickup. Thanks!

I imagine Les Pauls use a tall one for the bridge pickup because the neck is angled back, and the bridge is so tall.

Bingo. I'd imagine the SC is a pretty straight neck versus the body, so there's no need to push the pup way up off the body to get within striking distance of string vibes.
