Question f spaced pickups physicaly bigger than reg?

I just want to make sure that there physically the same size and just the pole peices are a little farther apart. I know that there is no sound diff. from what i hear on the forums. I want to order a fred from musicians friend but oddly enough they only have 1 color(black) in f-spaced freds and a million color options in the regular spaced freds... kinda silly since freds are bridge pickups... kinda weird but anywho... any feedback would be appreciated thx

Hey man, don't buy from them. Go and check for the member banjomikez on eba-y
Just ask for f-spaced/reg freds in what ever color.

They are not bigger, the pole pieces are just spaced out.

well, if you want feedbacks, fred is not a place to start. It's a very defined pickup, you need a lot of volume and gain to have feedback. What you want is the single coils in my korean strat copy. Those pup feedback with no effort what so ever, even with a 10w practice amp.




sorry, it was a bad joke

Elysian, seymour duncan seth lover PAF reissue sounds like an expensive, well built pickup. I reckon it feedbacks in a good way. The single coils in my korean strat copy is so horrible. I get unparralleled clearity when talking into them. It eliminates the need for a separate microphone.
