I have an 80's squier routed for humbuckerrs(it already has some in it) and I want to change the pups, and I was thinking burstbucker in the bridge and pearly gates in the neck. I've heard of something called F spacing where the pup sizes are different, and I was wondering if these would fit. Thanks
f spacing is where the pickup poles are spaced differently so they line up with the strings on a floyd rose tremolo. I'm not sure which would be better for a strat.
f spacing basically means fender spacing, as fender necks are slightly wider than normal necks, but most strat type necks use a wider f spaced neck
The difference is the pole spacing, not the exterior dimensions of the pickup. It should fit in your cavities.
