I have a Yamaha RGX120D, do I need F-spaced pickups or regular spaced?

Actually alot of guitars have F Spaced pickup these days. This is from DiMarzio's site.

F-Spacing
How do I know which spacing to use?
F-spaced pickups measure 2.01" (51 mm) center-to-center from the first polepiece to the sixth. Standard-spaced pickups measure 1.90" (48 mm).
Although some players believe that F-spaced pickups are only for the bridge position of tremolo bridge guitars, many guitars with fixed bridges (including modern Gibsons, Epiphones and other imported TOM guitars) should have F-spaced pickups in the bridge position. Most tremolo equipped guitars that have a nut width of 1-11/16 (43mm) or more should also use an F-spaced pickup in the neck position. If you’re replacing a bridge-position pickup and you're not sure what your string-spacing is, it's usually better to get an F-spaced model. It is not necessary for the strings to pass exactly over the center of the polepieces for best performance, but it is wise to avoid a situation where the E strings are sitting completely outside of the outer polepieces.

Seeing as your guitar has a trem on it, then I would say yes.


Sorry, I was away for a while.

Yes as in F-spaces?

If so, would regular be bad?

Well I actually meant to ask this question earlier, but I already bought a DiMarzio Crunch Lab with regular spacing and I just wanted to know if its a waste of money. >.>

Would it make any difference since it's a vintage style trem?

No, it will work just fine with a vintage trem. I have used regular spaced pickups on a few Strats with vintage trems. never had a problem, sounds fine to me. The Crunch Lab is also a high output pickup which helps.

Yes, Duncan specifically claims the spacing doesn't effect sound
however it is best to pick the correct spacing
