Members dredloxsuck Posted January 3, 2010 Members Share Posted January 3, 2010 I'm wondering if someone here has some good knowledge on this topic, but my dilemma is this: I own a 2002 Gibson SG faded special, and I decided to swap out the emg81 i had in the bridge position for years, with a regular-spaced Dimarzio super distortion. I didn't realize until after i had installed and restrung the guitar, that the pole pieces aren't all lining up. I always thought f-spacing was for tremolo type bridge set-ups, so i assumed i would be in the clear with this one. guess not. so my question is, will this screw things up? i mean, is the sound i am getting now, much different than what i would be getting had i installed the f-spaced p-up? right now, i am just getting used to the difference between having used the active p-up for so long and getting all that hi-gain, metal tonality coming through, to now having a much more mellow sounding rock tone. my ears need to adjust haha.
