Not a bad looking guitar, I love the S shape.

I always wanted to make a thread about this, looks like you might have an answer I have been looking for. What's F-spaced pickups? How is a F-Spaced Air norton different than a regular Air Norton. Sorry I don't want to hi jack your thread. Nice guitar!

From what i heard/know F spaced means that the polepieces (the metal circle things) are slightly further apart on guitars with a temolo bridge compared to a hardtail. But there is absolutely no difference in the sound whatsoever.

No need to change the pickups. My 2620 has them and I can't imagine it sounding any better.

Well, it was the only one they had at the shop... And doesn´t make much difference anyways. F spaced are for tremolo guitars. It has a tremelo, so i thought an f spaced neck wouldn´t matter. Its really a tiny difference, not even noticeable on sound.

well, you're still safe since the pole pieces distances is larger than the strings' and not the other way around.

Its just that i'd rather prefer a normal space for the neck
