F-Spaced basically means the pole-pieces will line up correctly underneath the strings of a fender trem (or Floyd, edge, lo/pro, wilkinson etc....)
To put it simple, the majority of trems utilise F-Spaced pups for optimum alignment as opposed to hardtails which usually line up best with standards.
Basically it means Fender set the standard which dictated what most have to use (think staggered single coils etc...)

Bear this in mind though,
if you are really *an4l
(like me) you'll find that most line up best with an F-Spaced bridge pup and a standard spaced neck pup.

I've always done F-Spaced in the Bridge and standard at the neck. * I just thought that's how it was supposed to be. *I never had any problem.

In my experience, i always use an F-space on the bridge, and a regular on the neck. You can put an F-space on the neck, but it doesn't really matter. Eighther kind work good; but defenitely an F-space for the bridge.

I have an F-spaced Tone Zone in the bridge and and F-spaced Air Norton in the neck of my Jem and they both sound good to me! *I don't really think you could go wrong either way soundwise though.
