I had Lace Sensors in a Strat thru a Fender Ultimate Chorus and loved the tone. Sold the guitar, but I have a set of Lace Duallies and will put them in something someday, more than likely.
Bought a Strat at a pawn shop and thought the pickups sounded really good, opened it up and they have the initials A.Y. and the date. Now I know what all the fuss is about with Strat tone. Abigail Yabarra (hope I spelled that right) has retired, but if you can score a set I'd say they're worth looking for.
