F spaced for Ibanez guitars...
you can get great Paul Gilbert tones with ToneZone bridge
and Paf Pro or Humbucker From hell neck.

Old Racer X was done with 2 Super Distortions wired in parallel

I have the exact same guitar with an F-Spaced Super Distortion in the bridge and a non-F Spaced Tone Zone in the neck. Works just fine, sounds great. It's overall balanced overall (though, for some odd reason, the bridge pickup is louder with cleans, and the neck pickup is louder with distortion, which works out just fine for me because my solo patches on my POD are usually quieter, and I solo on my neck pickup, so it balances it out perfectly).

Either one will work fine, you wont notice a sound difference, F spaced just lines to screws up with your E strings better for looks. I dont believe neck pickups come F spaced.
