    Not sure if this is the most appropiate please, but:

    i'm picking up a Strat Plus tommorow for a really good deal and i'm not much of a fan of the lace sensors, a few questions:

    1. how much could i get for a set of the Red, Blue and Silver Lace Sensors?

    2. What are the best strat pickups i can get for my strat, i play a lot of SRV and Hendrix, and really need the best cleans i can get. i'd like to keep it under 175.

    I'm not sure about the price, but for great vintage strat tones, you could do a lot worse than Lindy Fralins.

    Rio Grandes are pretty toneful and not too expensive.

    I've used Fralins, VanZandts, Suhrs, Duncans, and Rio Grandes, all with very good results. The Fralins (Vintage Hots) just have something extra, to my ears. The Rio Grande (Vintage Tallboys) were a very close second.
