Pick ups

I'm building an RG from parts and have a question. I purchased a used Edge Pro trem. Do I need an F-spaced pickup at the neck?

Re: Pick ups

I'll answer my own question. From the good people at DiMarzio:

"For proper string alignment and balanced output, F-spaced humbuckers should be used in the bridge position on all guitars with string spacing at the bridge of 2.1" (53 mm) or greater. On these guitars, if the nut width is 1-11/16” (43 mm) or greater, F-spaced pickups can be used in the neck position as well."
