I just installed a set of Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups in one of other strats, so took the Lace Sensors from *that* guitar and put them into my CV 60's strat.<br /> As much as I've liked the way the CV 60's plays (I already had another set of LS's in it, just a different colour) I always thought the tortoise shell p/g was too dark on an already dark coloured body.<br /> <br /> So, in with a Vintage Cream one and the black pickups & knobs. I think it looks very smart now.<br /> Very happy with the results.<br />

If you're happy, all that matters.<br /> <br /> Not a fan of the "black controls/PU covers" and white PG combo, but I'm a fairly die-hard "If it's sunburst, it gets tort on a Fender" guy.

I am hard to buy for!<br /> <br /> If I have to go with black hardware, I want everything black.<br /> <br /> Bridge. Pickups. Rings, tuners.<br /> <br /> If there were blackened stainless frets I'd want those too!

That looks sharp!<br /> <br /> A black PG would look great on there too.
