The Fluence are among the most authentic sounding because they dont use a dummy coil at all. They provide 2 switchable tones: a traditional 50's glassy tone and an overwound 60's tone.

If the fluence were passive I'd already own them. But being a fuzz guy, active pickups kinda ruin the Guitar volume > fuzz interaction.

My next set will be Zexcoils which are as good as the Fluence but passive.
I think you are being dazzling by the playing and the amp. With that quality of recording (and being dazzled by the player), I seriously doubt that you could tell much difference (if any) between a set of cheap ceramic pickups and the most expensive pickups that you could find to buy.

For what it is worth, I think that lace sensors sound good in their own right. I also think that they do not sound like classic strat single coils.

If any of these noiseless pickups did sound the same as classic strat pickups, everyone would be all over them, including guitar manufacturers. They would be standard equipment. Who doesn't want to kick the single coil noise? But they don't sound the same.
It's time to take a stand against the synthesizer.
