    Tres Hombres pickups are branded with the "Powered by Lace" logo and available in black only.

      Comments about Powered By Lace Tres Hombres Single Coil Electric Guitar Pickup:

      I used this pickup to replace a humbucking strat sized one in the neck pickup on my Ltd MV-100 which has a basswood body. I also installed a PBL Humbucker in the bridge, and they work together flawlessly. The tone that comes from this pickup is unbelievable, great highs and that powerful THUNK on the bass end. Using this pickup, you can use the neck position for both chords and lead work as it has that versatility. The tone can best be described in my guitar as tele like with punch. The overall tone spectrum on this pickup is amazing and I can imagine it would be great in bridge or middle positions if needed on a strat or tele style guitar. For the price, this pickup is amazing.

        Comments about Powered By Lace Tres Hombres Single Coil Electric Guitar Pickup:

        I bought this to replace the single coil middle pickup in a project guitar that I had already put a Duncan Scorcher humbucker in the bridge. I was a little concerned because the Scorcher is very hot and I was worried about volume dropout when switching between the two but the two mesh very well together.I was looking for the best of both worlds-the bottom end and growl of a humbucker with the clarity of a single coil. The Tres Hombres has given me the clarity I was looking for . My next desicion Is whether to replace the neck with another Tres Hombres or another Scorcher.l recommend either pickup as a huge improvement over stock pickups in a strat style guitar. Depending on the tone you are after, you can't go wrong with this pickup, it's a great single coil and a great buy.

        Sound pretty good, huge hassle

        Pros

          • Difficult To Use
          • Poor Quality

          Best Uses

            Comments about Powered By Lace Tres Hombres Single Coil Electric Guitar Pickup:

            I'll start off by saying it does sounds pretty good: a fairly snappy almost tele sound at the neck position.

            However, it is a huge pain.

            I have had nothing but issues since the day I got this pickup.

            To begin with, the wire for my bridge pickup was just barely long enough to work with in a back-cavity guitar.

            Additionally, the wire detaches from the coil, leaving a stressful re-soldering job.

            The whole frame is made of plastic, leaving nowhere to ground on the pickup.

            finally, the pole spacing is weird and will only evenly divide each string if you have a really wide nut and bridge, or you angle the pickup.

            In comparison to the other pickup in this guitar, a PRS p-90--which I have moved around and re-soldered far more times to no consequence--it is unworkable, and now unfortunately broken after only a year.

            Tres Hombre Rocks!!!

            I have always heard great things about Lace brand pups but have never owned any. I have to tell you from the price i was skeptical. Great news, the Tres Hombre Powered by Lace are really excellent pups.I Got a couple for my neck and bridge positions on a Fender MIM Strat that i thought there was no hope for. I was using it for a backup guitar cause i never thought it would sound as good as my telecaster '72 reissue. All i have to say is that now i have a tough decision on show nights. Excellent pickups. Get them while the price is right.

            I bought a neck and mid version of this pickup to replace the stock Ibanez pickups on my first guitar. These are not only an improvement over those, but a great pickup on their own. They have a nice thick tone with perfect string balance and are dead quiet when soloed, even with no additional shielding on my part. They look as sleek and modern as they sound, too. These are an amazing deal for the price.
