So I was wondering that if you do a custom guitar or body (or you just change pickups), and the body has a floyd rose tremolo , do you have to put trembuckers on it to sound good? or a normal humbucker like DiMarzio X2N would it fit and work normally? or different?
EDIT: I put it into Electric Guitar 'cuz I meant to ask for the general sound of the guitar (in this case would be mahogany with flamed maple top)
My gear:
-LTD EC401VF DMZ in Lemon Drop
-Ormsby Run 3 Hype GTR
-Michael Kelly 1953 in Blue Jean Wash
-Yamaha C40M

Just get an F spaced pickup. Either type will work, its just that an F spaced will fit better and not look at messy. DiMarzio released (every?) pickups in normal and F spaced to fit both types of bridges. I think SD pickups are one size fits all or something like that, and some have their own spacing (Like the dimbucker)

(Im tired so if I got anything wrong dont kill me T_T)

I don't pickups with rails like the Dimarzio X2N will make a difference, as the whole rail is the magnet. If it were an Evo persay, then the pole pieces wouldn't line up if it weren't F-spaced.

F-Spaced=Trembucker.
The X2n has no distinct polepieces for each string, so it doesn't matter.
If it were something like a Duncan JB then yes, you'd need the Trembucker version (denoted in SD nomenclature as TB, so the JB would be the TB-4).

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
