    Just picked up a set of 3 lace sensors for $50 at my local music store.

    Red
    Blue
    Silver

    what order do these go in? does it matter?

    &
    250 or 500k pots?

    Thanks :)

    Typically, it goes:

    Red - Bridge
    Blue - Middle
    Silver - Neck

    thanks :)

    I was looking on "teh googler"
    saw some different combos - red neck, blue bridge, silver middle etc, I just wanted to stock setup, which I've always seemed to enjoy

    I have always seen it red bridge, silver middle, blue neck, ala Billy Corgan.

    True... Corgan did in fact do this with his 57' RI strat...

    Most people put the blue in the middle though. I called Lace Support and they told me they reccomend it that way... but Corgan is one of my all-time favorites so if it works for you then go for it!

    I have a Strat Ultra and it came stock with two reds in the bridge, gold in the middle and blue in the neck.

    I put together the entire guitar tonight for the exception of wiring the pickguard, I had a tele switch instead of a strat 5 way so non of the switch tips fit. Tommorow I'll swing by sam crash and get some knobs and a 5 way.

    the actions setup, came out suprisingly well & plays great too..
