  • Pole piece alignment

    I don't mean to be anal but does the spacing of Seymour Duncan humbucker pole pieces properly line up with the string spacing on stock gibson bridges?

    SD makes standard spaced humbuckers and trem spaced humbuckers. The standard size buckers should line up just fine with stock Gibson bridges.

          Duncans work great with Gibsons but they don't line up exactly.
