    Question String Spacing on EBMM Valentine

    Hi friends! New to the forum and a recent EBMM convert.

    I have a Stingray RS and a Valentine and was thinking about another JValentine because the neck is TOO comfortable.

    If I got a second, Id swap the bridge for a humbucker and the neck for a p90 but does anyone know the string spacing I should order for these two swaps?

    Thanks in advance!

    I just pulled out the calipers on my Valentine --

    2.01 in / 2 + 1/64 in / 51.29mm is the measurement I get in-between the outer strings @ center of outer pole pieces on the neck humbucker.

    2.1 in / 2 + 7/64in / 53.43 mm is the measurement I get for the same on the bridge single-coil (didn't slant).

    In either case I'd recommend choosing "F-Spaced" pickups for best fit if you don't replace with another set from EB.

    As an aside, I feel like I'm the only guy on the planet (well, outside of James Valentine I guess) that likes the stock pickup configuration in the Valentine!

    F-spaced for the bridge, standard for the neck.

    I actually do love them too. This pickup swap would be for my second Valentine! Thanks for the measurements!

    Nope, I wouldn’t dream of changing the pickups on my Valentine. I love it the way it is.
