Nope, not OCD about it. It's the pickup I want, and it's what I'm gonna get.

Gibson guitars are not F-spaced unless they have a trem (typically a Floyd) with the wider string spacing. F-spaced pickups are generally meant for guitars with vibrato units (Floyd, Vintage-style trem or otherwise). Where do you think the F came from? It's for Fender, the first company to put a vibrato unit on a solidbody guitar, with the different string spacing.

Even Dimarzio advise of this in their FAQs:
"F-spaced pickups measure 2.01" (51 mm) center-to-center from the first polepiece to the sixth. Standard-spaced pickups measure 1.90" (48 mm). Although some players believe that F-spaced pickups are only for the bridge position of tremolo bridge guitars, many guitars with fixed bridges (including post-1998 Gibson® and Epiphone® Les Paul®, SG® and semi-hollow guitars) should have F-spaced pickups in the bridge position." - Dimarizio website.
