Talking Pickup measurement question

Who has a ruler and can measure the distance of the poles of an F-spaced pickup from the outer poles to center?
I'm trying to find a replacement cover for my Jem single coil and am not near it right now.

Re: Pickup measurement question

Single coils are only one size... its humbuckers which are Standared or F Spaced

Re: Pickup measurement question

Check the Dimarzio FAQ for spacing of single coils:

Is there F-spacing for single-coils?

All of our single-coil-sized pickups are designed for F-spaced applications.

Re: Pickup measurement question

According to Dimarzio they are all F-spaced which helps a tad.

Re: Pickup measurement question

Sorry, for the confusion, just all Dimarzio Single pickups I have or ever bought were the same size, and at the time I called Dimarzio they said it was standard and not F-Spaced. This was for H2 & H3 when I was looking for a replacement from my JEM single Coil. Since H2 & H3 are use more in Strats, and also was the same demtions of my JEMs Single coil I assumed what they told me was true.

As for the the Dimarzio's FAQs, it just says ther are design for F-Spaced applications, but when you order these pickups, they do not have a option for F-Spaced, only the Humbuckers do... so this is why its confusing.

Hopefullly you go all the info you need to get the correct covers:
