    Thumbs up Sterling Music Man JP-160

    Just purchased anew EBMM JP160 knowing I would be changing out the pickups and tremelo. Bought F Spaced Illuminators for both bridge and neck positions. Seems to be some debate on F Spaced at neck, but I think I've made the right decision going both F Spaced. Hopefully I hear a lot of agreement!

    If you check at the EBMM FAQ section on their website you'll notice that while the bridge humbucker is indeed F-spaced, the neck humbucker is not. I don't know however whether that is going to be a problem or not. Maybe it won't. But you can always send it back, and replace it with a regular spaced Illuminator (neck).

    I doubt it will be an issue but the F-spacing has always been a thing for the JP's bridge position. I remember going through this with an old Ibanez 7 string. Tried to make an RG sound like a JP7....yeeaaaaaaaaa no. LOL

    You only need F Space for the Bridge.
    Did you attempt to contact Service at SBMM/Praxis recently? I ask because one of my former coworkers reached out to me with that question.
