    Pickup Spacing Question?

    When you measure spacing you are going from the center of the low e pole piece to the center of the high e polepiece right? I ask because I've been throwing some of my old shitty Jackson stock pickups up on Ebay and one of the neck models is more like 48mm. I want to avoid a YOU MISREPRESENTED THE ITEM dispute, do I just call this a standard spaced pickup? I've never really measured any other stock pickups, but on all the SDs/Dimarzios/BKPs I've had it always comes out to a nice exact 50mm or 53mm from center to center.

    You've got it! Middle of Low E polepiece to middle of High E polepiece. Doesn't Carvin have smaller pickups?
