Really ?? you must not be on here much.
as far as where they should be set, all you need ( after a start point like the good one Soulman posted) is a screw driver and:
There are a ton of variables so you just need to HEAR the sweet spot (TO YOU), in each pup. I just go one screw turn up at a time and then go down as well and keep track of where you are (cw and ccw turns) based off the start point, you just have to experiment, back and forth. There are pros and cons to both near and far, (like Sesame Street) the player needs to find the spot that gives them what they need. A balance of power and tone. Depends on if you play clean or dirty too.
