SUPER DISTORTION IN NECK POSITION?

I bought a new dimarzio dp100 f spaced pu about a month ago and never got around to installing. So today I just relized that amazon did not send me a f spaced version, as there is no fspace writing on the box and also when comparing to the soon to be replaced inifinity bridge pu out of this rg450 the pole pices are definetly wider apart on the infinity. So would this super d still make a somewhat usable neck pickup??

Re: SUPER DISTORTION IN NECK POSITION?

generally you want a lower output pup in the neck compared with whatever is in the bridge.. if thats the case then its fine...

Also you can put a non f spaced pup in a f spaced guitar, its just asthetics, the sound will be fine..

Yep he summed it up. The sd will probably sound terrible in the neck. The f-space thing is ascetics. It doesn't really affect sound.

Alright, I just ordered a breed neck pup to also install, what would be a good single coil or mini humbucker to put in with this set I have going on.

Isn't there a breed/jem single coil?

Presumably that would work well.

I was thinking maybe a true velvet, thats what ibbys seems to use on the prestige models.

depends on the sound you want. true velvet is a pretty powerful single coil (its great, but I prefer more balanced pups).
