    F-space or normal on a Cort M520?

    I have a Cort M520 which I really love. I've exchanged the brigde pickup for a Duncan Custom (TB-5) so now it sounds amazing as well. I measured the string distance to 52 mm and opted for a trembucker (F-spaced), but once in the guitar the pickup is a bit too wide for the pickup ring and the high E string is slightly inside of the pole (see attached pic).

    Solutions I'm considering:

    1) Do nothing :-)
    2) Change pickup ring (got one with the pup but it's the wrong color)
    3) Getting a normal spaced Duncan Custom and moving the trembucker to my Ibanez S470. But I'm thinking a normal spaced will be too narrow...

    Any tips?

    1) leave it as is. No need to change anything.
