Noisy Fender/Lace Sensors
Hey All,  
I use Gold FLS pickups in my '89 Deluxe Strat Plus. Anybody else have hum problems with these pickups? Wiring harness, pickups(brand new),switch, pots, pickguard(White Moto), etc. all newly replaced by me. Regutted entire electronic assembly. Still not as quiet as I would like. Any advice?

I have the exact same guitar, year and all, with a neat gray-burst finish. I don't have any hum problems with it. It does have more than my humbucker guitars, but less than a regular single coil Strat.  
What is "... as quiet as I would like"? How bad is it compared to other guitars?  
Good luck,  
Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Thanks for the response. It is not the noisiest guitar in the world, but it is noisier than it used to be when I bought it. I replaced the guts(recently) and it did quiet it down a bit, but not as much as I would like. BTW, she's Ebony Frost. The Moto pickguard is new. This guitar is very worn in. I bought it when I was 16. All the beer spillage must have taken its toll. Kids!
