  • trembucker or normal?? help

    hi guys
    im soon be putting a new bridge pickup into my gibbo v and i was checking the stock pickups to see whether they were normal spaced

    to do this, i found one of my old ibanez pickups (from my rg470) which is trem spaced and laid it next to the stock gibson pickups (500T)

    and they line up! - i always thought the opposite! that gibson Vs were normal spaced
    but here, the tremspaced ibanez pickup lines up with the gibbo pickup and the strings

    am i missing somthin...?

        another thing too
        i took the ibanez pickup out of an rg470 and put in a normal spaced tone zone
        the tone zone doesnt line up!
        so im guessn that would suggest the ibanez pickup was trem spaced?

          Easy way to find out: Measure the string spacing at the bridge pickup. If the strings are 2" (5.08cm) apart or closer, a normal humbucker will line up fine. If its more, go Trembucker
