Yup those numbers are correct. That's how I would order pickups, if I were ordering...
And Laney, you're right...People do call it Floyd spacing or Fender spacing depending on who you ask. Come to think of it floyd spacing might be more apt these days. The lines keep getting blurred anyway. Have you seen John McLaughlin's guitar recently? At this rate pretty soon we'll have an all new JM-spacing
