well i was once told to get the pickups as close to the strings as possible without any buzz. however when i put my EMG's in, it just didnt seem right. so what i suggest is find that spot where the pickups dont give you any buzz then just use trial and error lowering the pickups by 1 half turn of the screwdriver on each side (trying to keep the distance from the strings the same at both sides of each pickup)

its different for all guitars and pickups so trial and error is really the only thing to suggest

If it comes down to it you could take it in to a guitar shop and their rather tell you how or fix it. A couple of bucks is much better than no guitar for days on end.

There's no set rule to it. Just strike the strings and start adjusting to taste.

The closer the pickups are to the strings, the louder the output, but there will be more compression, so there will be less dynamic range. So the quiet bits will be loud, but when you thrash it, the sound will not be much louder. And you might have trouble with high gain stuff, as all your finger movements will be amplified.

Further away, less volume from the guitar, but more dynamic range. If you pick lightly, it will sound quiet. If you thrash it, it will sound loud. However, there will be more background noise from your pickups (though buckers will compensate for that to an extent).

So just get your screwdriver out, and start adjusting.
