      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      I recently had to replace the neck pickup on my Jeff Beck Strat and I decided to go with a little darker sound than the "gold" lace pickup that it came with. I went with the "Blue" on the recommendation that it had a warmer sound more like a Humbucker. It sounds great and still has that crunch that you want but is just that much mellower that it really gives the guitar more range with a good Jazz sound on the neck pickup. I play a lot of blues and country and I've received comments that it really sounds good.

      Fender Silver & Gold Lace Sensors

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      My ?96 Deluxe Strat Plus came with the Red Bridge, Silver Middle, & Blue Neck Fender Lace Sensor pickups. Although very quiet, the Red FLS is more like an over wound Humbucker which is great for massive distortion while the Blue is more of a P90 sound. Also, the ?quack? tones on pos 2 & 4 is not very apparent. After having played a friend?s Strat Plus with 3 Gold FLS I found the neck and mid had excellent Strat tone and response but the bridge was a little week. So, I moved my Silver FLS to the Bridge (7.1k Ohms, 3.38 Henries, 3000 Hz peak frequency, fat 70s single coil sound and increased output with punchier midrange) and added two Gold FLS (5.8k Ohms, 2.4 Henries, 3600 Hz peak frequency, classic 50's style single coil with bell-like sound) in the Neck/Mid positions that I got from MF. That solved the Humbucker/P90 issue and now the tone is very similar to the CS54 Single Coils both in specs and tone but without all the hum. Now the ?quack? tone on 2 & 4 are classic Fender. Keep in mind these are not true noiseless but the overall hum is super-reduced without taking the life out of the pickups. Lace Sensors are the only true noise reducing single coil currently available. Holy Grail, Noiseless, SCN, Kinman, Virtual Vintage, Area 58 etc are all dual coil Humbucker designs and that is why they do not sound like true single coils. Also, per Jeff Lace, there is no difference between Fender Lace Sensors and Lace Sensors other than the embossed logo. As mentioned in another review, these will definitely sound best with the TBX (Treble-Bass-eXpander) tone control. The TBX came standard with the Strat Plus series. However, to get the most out of the TBX you MUST change the resistor and rewire it per the instructions detailed on the Blue Guitar website. The links arehttp://www.blueguitar.org/new/schem/_gtr/tbx-mods_and_details.pdf for the wiring details and http://www.blueguitar.org/new/schem/_gtr/tbx_poop.txt to explain why the mod is needed. This mod cost less than .99 from RS and replaces the 82k Ohm tone-sucking series resistor to 120k Ohm parallel resistor which allows the TBX to work flawlessly with passive pickups from 0 to 10 with no dropouts. It?s a very simple mod that make your Sensor loaded Strat sound how it should with little to no 60 cycle hum.

      Gold Lace Sensors

      By STRATOSPHERE-iXPPs

      from south FLA

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      I own several 92 strat plus guitars equipped with gold lace sensor pups. They offer a bell like tone with shimmering fluid mids and whistleling treble. They have a weaker bass tone response then the blue or red sensors but deliver the strat quack in or out of phase. If you are looking for a fatter sound out of your single coil pup equipped strat check out the blue or red lace sensors. For great versatility I play my 91 deluxe plus strat equipped with red lace bridge, blue lace middle and silver lace neck pups.

      Great stuff, as long you use the right pots

      By Eric Kleefeld

      from New Jersey

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      These things will sound GREAT if you use a Fender TBX tone pot, as was equipped on the Strat plus, and horrible without one. With the right pot you can get a great Strat tone, or even roll it down to get something more warm and muddy. Without that pot: bland, sterile and always muddy. It explains a lot.Bear in mind, these are NOT noiseless pickups. They are low-noise single coils, that with the right electronics setup will give you a good single-coil twang, great sustain due to low magnetic pull, and uniform volume levels during string bends. But there is still a little noise to live with.Overall, these are great pickups and well worth the money. I'm considering replacing my 1997 stock Fender single coils. And I'll be sure to use TBX tone pots.

      I like 'em

      By Bruxo Mantrepaz

      from nevada, ia

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      I put a silver(neck), blue(middle), & a red(bridge)into a standard strat MIM as a little experiment. I don't know anyone who likes stock factory strat pups. I always disliked the weak bottom end. The Lace pups are quiet, well defined, and they give you a compressed sound. However, the red version is hot and works very well with Boss metal zone. For most of the distortion leads I record, I use the middle and bridge combination with the both tone pots set at 5 or slightly less. This is then run through a Boss compressor-Boss volume pedal-Ibanez Tube Screamer-DOD Flanger-Boss DD6 delay-Marshall Chorus- (clean)Marshall 100 Stack with presence set slightly less than half. example of sound: "Layla". You won't have to push the amp very hard. I have recorded with this guitar without any other mods for the last 5 years.Hope this helps.

      Great overall sound.

      By SillyBird

      from Fort Pierce, FL

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      I have a 2004 American Stratocaster and I play through a Hot Rod Deville 410 amp. I read many reviews online, and while it may have been a quick decision to just buy a pickup set from word of mouth, I was not disappointed. These pickups give you a very tight, almost compressed sound while not losing the classic Stratocaster twang and glassy tones. Even though I am very picky about overdriven tone, these pickups easily satisfy my needs. The lows and mids are tight, while it is easy to produce leads that cut through the mix. For a pickup that gives you a tight, colorful overdriven sound and a clear, well rounded clean sound look no further than Lace sensor golds.

      Fender Gold Lace Sensor

      By jcsstratguy-eU6B1

      from Atlantic City, NJ

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      I have been a start player since I first started playing guitar. My first guitar was a cheep Mexican start, which progressed into my current lineup of 4 American Strats. The only down side to the start for me was the noise, that 60 cycle hum was not something a like dealing with. Playing in clubs with neon signs all over was a plague to my Strats, but the lace sensors cut out the noise, and still give me my sought after start quack. great tone, no noise, and amazing quality. In the studio or on stage these pickups allow me to get the best out of my guitars and my stage rig.

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      These pickups are great. They have great sustain, and at high output, they sound like humbuckers more than single coils. These are great for Rock, Southern Rock, Metal, Clasic Rock. I use the "red with Black Cover."

      Great Pumpkins-like tone

      By Candi Apples

      from Yuma, AZ

      Comments about Fender Stratocaster Electric Guitar Pickup:

      Great pickup, It doesn't sound too much like a humbucker, you still get that twangy single coil sound. But it does sound great and can hang with the heviest guitars. It sounds great playing anything. Even metal. The clean sound is amazing. I love it!
