RG321 pickup upgrade

If I'm say, getting Seymour Duncans for my RG321, do I need Standard Humbucker spacing or Trembucker spacing?

Trembucker spacing (F-spacing) for the bridge pup would aling the pole pieces better with the strings. Regular spacing would leave the E strings outside of the strings. Even the stock pups don't align.

Re: RG321 pickup upgrade

Geez, how many pickup spacing questions are going to pop up on this forum? If you want the pole pieces to align properly then get F-spaced or "trembucker" spaced pickups. This is true for ALL of the Ibanez RGs and S series guitars. Of course, you don't HAVE to do this and many people will say that it doesn't really matter which you get but if they're both the same price and have the same availability then go ahead and get what's meant to be in the guitar.
