I'm about to go buy pickups and I need to know if F-spacing on a Floyd Rose guitar still matters for the neck pickup?

I'm sure it does for the bridge.

double check these numbers but i think...

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).

even if the bridge needs an F space, the neck "might" not, as the strings start to get closer towards the top.

you just want the pup that's going to be as close as possible string to pole center.

so measure the pups in there now. see how they line up and get the same style, provided they look good to u.

Hmm, my store doesn't have F-spaced PAF Pro's.
Would having regular spaced pickups in an F-spaced neck slot have a big effect on tone?

the neck usually doesnt need to be F-spaced because the strings meet in the same place near the neck on most guitars be they trem or fixed bridge

You're not going to need one in the neck.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.


Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.
