    Sorry if this has been covered already, but i searched far and wide without finding any answer, besides personal experience :

    I wonder why many telecaster pickup sets, like the CS Texas Specials, have staggered pole pieces at the bridge and are flat at the neck.
    Does this mean that the more you go down the neck the less impact pole piece height has ?

    I would have thought the contrary, though strings vibrate more away from the bridge.

    Any insight much appreciated.

    Thanks !
