The Lace Sensor Blue - World Class Tone. Lace has built these world famous patented pickups since 1985. Used exclusively by Fender® until 1996, these pickups have the same specifications with the same great tone. Blue Lace Sensor guitar pickups are designed to duplicate an early Fender single coil pickup.
Crisp top end and bell-like tone, the Lace Sensor Blue single coil pickup utilizes the latest technology to provide excellent tone for today's players.

The Lace Sensor Blue has a unique radiant Field Barrier system that surrounds both the coil and magnets, reducing annoying 60-cycle hum. The patented Lace Micro Combs replace traditional bobbins, yielding a wider tonal range and better string balance than traditional pickups.

Unlike ordinary pickups, it generates 36 separate magnetic "sensing" fields that, in the areas where they contact the string, "read" the strings' vibration. (Regular guitar pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).

The Lace Sensor Blue guitar pickup also has Radiant Field Barriers: metal slides that frame the inner core of the Sensors and perform two functions. The first is to shield the Sensor from the outside noise and 60-cycle hum. The second is to produce broader, yet more concentrated, umbrellas of sensing field than standard magnetic pickups.

Less Noise, More Harmonics
As compared to standard pickups, the Lace pickup reads a greater physical area of the string, while picking up less outside interference. This makes the signal-to-noise ratio nothing short of phenomenal for a single coil system. Also, a wider range of harmonic content is read by the Sensor, delivering a more complex tonal response.

Increased Sustain, Truer Pitch
Since it operates so efficiently, Lace Sensors can utilize much lower energy magnets than ordinary pickups, and this in turn brings about a whole new realm of properties. In regular pickups, the magnetic fields are so strong they physically dampen, or drag on, the strings' vibration, reducing sustain and actually changing the pitch. But in the Lace Sensor Blue, string dampening is virtually nonexistent. This means your sustain is increased dramatically while the string holds its true pitch for the duration of the note.

Lace includes a three-inch mini data CD that includes all its latest wiring diagrams in color along with Lace's most current pickup and guitar catalogs. Also includes a warranty card and other useful information regarding Lace Music Products.

      Comments about Lace Sensor-Blue Pickup:

      what can I say I have the blue in the neck and it sounds big full warm and still strat sounding. At first it sounded a little muddy to me because I use 11s. I brought the pick up down a little meaning not as close to the strings and bang!! that nice big full srv sound came ALIVE out of my DRRI. I went with the red sliver blue set and so glad I did.

      A possible good potion

      Comments about Lace Sensor-Blue Pickup:

      I put this PU in a musicmaster bass ( they originally had a strat PUs) as an improvement for the magnetic distribution across the strings. The tone is quite good for bass and the strings feel more balanced. The output is a little on the low side but higher than a standard PU. Over all it is not bad but it does need good shielding on the entire guitar, as the PU is so sensitive you get hum from fluorescent lighting etc. Overall I'm happy with it.

      Buy this for your neck!!!!

      Comments about Lace Sensor-Blue Pickup:

      I recently traded a guitar for a custom built mahogany strat body guitar and it was wired up with the lace sensors in it. sound nice in clean, but I love it thru high gain! no buzz at all, sounds just like a P-90 when there is mild to decent "vintage" crunch type of break up, sounds amazing in clean thru a vintage twin reverb! this is the bes single coil neck pick-up ever!

      Sweet Sweet Candy

      By StratBuilder

      from Martinsville, VA

      Comments about Lace Sensor-Blue Pickup:

      I put this pup in the neck position with a regular reverse-wound strat pickup in the middle, and a red lace sensor in the bridge. My strat now absolutely SMOKES!!! This might not be an ideal rhythm pickup (that's why the second position on the pickup selector includes the middle pickup too), but for solo-oriented playing (Petrucci, Vai, Malmsteem, McAlpine, you get the picture...) it is perfect. Switching from this to the red is just enough of a change to make the red sound ultra-hot!! I play through a Korg processor, DOD YJM, DOD Milk Box, Morley Bad Horsie, Line 6 Spider II head, and 4X12 Marshall cab. With this combo, I can dial in just about anything, and the Blue and Red Sensors just add more icing to the cake.
