    Does anybody know which Lace sensor pickup was used in the middle position? I have heard of the T-100 red being used but it seems my google fu is only showing red lace's at bridge 12.8K when I think I need to be around 6.5K at that position.

    I have a two pickup set with the T-150 bridge and one neck pickup, just looking for the one that should be in the middle position. I have found one with the model number 21141-02 but think that one is more for the bridge on a strat maybe, the resisitence is not listed.

    The original version had the red silver blue combo.

    So the silver is for the middle? Do you know if that pup was originally designed for a strat?

    That looks close, it is listed as 7.1K.

    Yes - that original Burton set was also in the Strat Plus Deluxe as of 1990 - not sure which was out first between the two models. The silver logo Lace was often called a "fat Strat" voice.

    Yes silver in the middle. And yes those are strat sized pups. The original JB Tele pups had sort of dog ears on them to top mount the way they did so were not interchangeable with a regular strat or tele plus though.

    Here is a tele plus I modded with hot golds 6k/6k/12k.

    I had a JB in Red Frost; should've never sold it.

    Thanks for all the input, I'll pick up a silver and give it a go.
