DiMarzio D Activator X Question
« on: October 11, 2019, 11:16:27 pm »
Hello all!

I ordered a set of DiMarzio D Activator X set for my PRS S2 Standard 22.  But, it says F-Spaced. Are they all F-Spaced? I am not sure that my guitar is F-Spaced... whatever that means.

Both F-spaced and Regular spaced pickups will work in PRS SE guitars. Neither one is too far off from the string spacing.

The D-Act X uses blades, so there's no poles to line up. You'll be fine.
If you need to get a pickup with pole pieces, PRS uses a 52mm spacing - a bit wider than old-school Gibsons (50mm IIRC), a bit less than F-spaced (53mm). I'd go F-spaced for the bridge and standard for the neck just for coverage, but either will work.

Thank you for the info @greenlion, @Strangeman86, and @HarlowTheFish!

A good friend of mine offered to wire it and spice up the electronics! So, it's ready to go!

What is a good setting height that worked out for you on your DAXs?

I had mine level with the pickup rings on my Explorer because they were making my amp sound kinda blown out. It was the same output more or less as the Gibson pickups it had originally, so medium-hot rock pickup output.
