    Pickup spacing on a Reflex? (Thornbuckers)

    Hi guys,

    I'm toying with the idea of putting a set of Thornbuckers in my Reflex, but before I can order I need to know which spacing to pick... 50mm or 53mm.

    I never swapped pickups before, so this would be a first. And I'm unsure exactly what this spacing means and how it should be measured. Distance between the strings?

    Also would love input if anyone around here has tried Thornbuckers in a Reflex or other MM guitar!

    Cheers,
    Kasper

    The stock ones are F-spaced at the bridge and standard-spaced at the neck (Dimarzio). Different vendors use a slightly different spacing, but I wouldn't sweat a few mm.

    Ok, thanks!

    As I said, I never swapped pickups before - and this is definitely something I never would have thought to check! But you learn something new every day I guess
