    The Broad'tron poles in my Streamliner measure 1-15/16" center-to-center, E-to-E, and the bridge poles measure 2-1/16". The string spacing at the bridge measure 2-1/16".

    The 490 neck poles in my Gibson Lucille measure 1-15/16", and the bridge poles measures 2-1/32".

    F-spacing originated for Floyd Rose trems I believe, and those were in roughly the same ballpark as the Fender vintage trem string spacing, which was 2-7/32".

    So, you need G (Gibson) spacing, not F (Floyd/Fender) spacing.
