Question dimarzio set 42mm or 43mm for les paul?

hey guys im going to pickup some dimarzio sets off ebay but im confused which one to get 42mm or 43mm which will go to my epi les paul but i do not know what those measurements mean..
iv read in other threads and forums that i need an f-space in the bridge and regular in the neck so which of those two will fit? or am i better off buying them individually?

F spacing is cosmetic and lines the poles up under Fender spaced bridges.
You don't need them for a Les Paul.

You'll be fine with either version.

i see but i have looked at some photos that using a reg space in the bridge the poles does not align with the strings and it just looks ugly. of course id like my guitar to look nice and balanced. sad that there arent any store near me that i take a look..

Like I said--It's cosmetic.
Regular spaced will work fine---we've been using them for many years...long before they started making F-spaced pickups.
