FRM250MF - F-spaced or not? - angled pickups!

Hi all,
I'm looking to replace the Air Classic pickups in my FRM250MF with something a little more tight and focused. I think I'll get a crunch lab unless anyone has any better suggestions for working with a high gain ENGL amp?

My issue is whether I require F-spaced pickups? The string width is quite big, the bridge is a 'Tight-Tune Fixed' however the pups are angled and as such the string width is essentially reduced?

Does anyone have any idea if I require F-spaced or not? I've contacted Ibanez but no response as of yet!

Thanks loads!

PS - This is my first post since 2013 - been lurking for years!

Have you measured the pole-piece spacing, or pulled the pickups and looked at the baseplate? That'll give you your answer. From memory DiMarzios have an "F" stamped on them for F-spacing, and besides that, the simple way to get your answer without pulling apart anything is to measure the pole-pieces.
