pickups on my RG550

my 550 has the V1 and V2 humbuckers, and whichever one is at the bridge (i cant remember offhand right now) doesnt seem wide enough, like it isnt F spaced or whatever you call it. both pups are exactly the same width, and at the bridge the low e doesnt hardly go over the poll piece at all. is this going to affect the sound much?

Personally, I'd scrap them for Dimarzios. Its a huge improvement.

It won't affect the sound at all (lots of these questions this weekend ).
