Pickup nut length 42 or 43 mm in RGA Prestige

Iam wanting to replace the stock pups in a prestige rga 321F. The dmarzio dactivators come with two nut sizes: 42.mm(1 5/8. and 43mm 1 11/16. Without pulling the old pups out does anyone know what they might be?

Thanks for any input...

Pardon my stupidity. I misread the question AND forgot all my measurements

43mm is the width of the nut. the f spaced pickups are more like 52 or 58mm!

Re: Pickup nut length 42 or 43 mm in RGA Prestige

Thanks for the info.... what I meant is that when you order pups for the rga321 prestige from MF it offers them in a 42mm(1 5/ or 43 mm(1 11/16) length of the actual bolt/screw that holds them in...does that make sense? So, I was just wondering if anyone might know the length of that screw since I havnt actually pilled them out. Also, I totally forgot about the pup size..how can I tell if I need standard or F spaced pups? Thanks for any help!!!!!

Typically, any Ibanez with a trem will need f-spaced pickups in the bridge and neck. However, I've found that fixed-bridge Ibanez use f-spaced pickups, too.

It doesn't matter which length mounting bolt you get....1mm won't make or break anything.

WAIT...... the pups on an RG321 are direct mount.....42 or 43mm bolts will go completely through the body. your reading the ad wrong. they're asking about the width of your nut as everyone has pointed out. The RGA321 had a 43mm nut.

The neck doesn't matter so much, but since they're priced the same, yes get both in F-spaced. BTW..... you're very welcome.
