Can I replace just the neck pickup in my MIM strat with a red lace sensor, leaving the others, and everything will work ok?

Thanks.

Yeah, but it'll have a lot more output than the others.

I'm going to backtrack a little bit here.

I've got a blue and white one too (these are an unused set of Lace Sensors I found in my attic).

Which would be the best in the neck?

blue in the neck!

the red is a very high output bridge pickup

Ok.

Theoretically, what would the red sound like in the neck?

Thanks for you guys' help, by the way.

The red might get too muddy.

I'd put the blue in the neck, the white (i'm assuming it's the silver model) in the middle, and the red in the bridge.

agressive is probably the word

might get muddy with gain

you could always put the red in, string up but not trim them, see what its like and re use the old strings with the blue in

thatd make good use of a sunday afternoon

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
