non f-spaced hum in where a f-spaced humbucker should be

what would happen if u put a non f-spaced or standard humbucker in where a f-spaced humbucker should be for ex.
most dimarzios come in f-spaced or standard what if u had a non f-spaced would u loose sound and tone?

There would be no audible difference.

- you think -

But as soon as you see "mis-aligned" polepieces, you're gonna start thinking "my sound isn't so good maybe I need F-spaced pickups"

- you don't -

Search the forum, you'll see a hell of a lot of posts about this. A few guys have done experiments even. No difference

If the poles are not too far off the outer strings it does not matter at all, but if the low or especially the weaker high E is too far off you lose power on that one string,making it unbalanced with the others

IMO, F spaced are only for the design of your guitar...

What a pity to see a guitar with a string not perfectly on the center of the pole piece !

But for the sound, no difference.

FWIW, just to add to the consensus, I contaced one of the big two a while back (can't remember if it was Dimarzio or SD), and they indicated that it would make little or no difference.

anyone no what type of single coil neck pickup would contrast nively with the tone zone in the bridge, at the momen my guitar has the neck and middle piclups that were in the guitar when i bought it and they are EMG select pickups i'v heard that the seymour duncan cool rails is a good and powerful neck pickup
