RG550 will Standard HB work?

I have an RG550 1987, I threw in a Dimarzio Super Distortion but afterwards noticed the poles don't align with the strings. I'm assuming I need an F-Spaced PU. But it does sound good the way it is. Should I get an F-Spaced anyway?

Don't worry about it, it's more cosmetic than anything.

Ok. I got to reading Dimarzio's site and other threads, all seem to indicate the slightest misalignment, forward, back, spacing, make big differences.

Can you hear any differences? I know I haven't been able to over the years, and if there were it would have been microscopic.

You know this, it sounds good to you, so don't worry.

F-space, regular, doesn't matter to me. I can't hear a difference.
