Lace

Less noise, more harmonics, more sustain.

The Sensor Gold - World Class Tone in a 3-pack of single coils. 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. Gold Lace Sensor pickups are designed to duplicate an early Fender single coil pickup.
Crisp top end and bell-like tone, it utilizes the latest technology to provide excellent tone for today's players.

The Lace Sensor Gold 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 pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).

The Lace Sensor Gold 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 guitar pickups, the Lace Sensor Gold 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 guitar 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 Gold, 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 Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

      I have a 1990 Deluxe Strat Plus that had the Red, Silver, Blue Lace set in it. I was never wild about those pickups, and was looking for more of a traditional Strat sound without changing the guitar entirely. So I dropped in these Golds and they do the job. A lot more of a traditional Strat sound with the Golds than with the Red, Silver, and Blue. So now, effectively, this guitar is a Strat Plus, not a Deluxe Strat Plus since the only difference was the pickups. They are completely noiseless as well. They do have a bit of a different feel than a vintage pickup, though. Not quite sure how to explain it....less elastic? Less sproingy? They're definitely a bit compressed sounding. But overall I like them.

          Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

          I have a Squier 70's Modified Strat that came with Duncan Designed SC-101 pickups. They sounded really good in the music store, but horrible once I took the guitar home. I tried adjusting them to improve the sound, but to no avail. Thus, I had to upgrade the pickups, as the guitar wasn't worth having otherwise. Did lots of research regarding price/quality, and decided on the Lace Golds. These pickups brought my Squire back from the grave, and it now sounds as good as an American Fender. They don't work so well for metal or heavier tones, but for clean to semi-clean, they are truly the best. They add color and depth to most everything I play. The tone is so rich,smooth and articulate, you will swear that your playing ability instantly improves. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

              I used these to replace the Standard Strat pickups I put in my Strat clone. What a diiference!! The standards sounded ok but these are the real deal. No matter which pickup selection position the switch is in, these give that great Fender singel coil sound. Highly recommend these to anyone looking for that classic sound.

                Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

                I received my lace sensor pickups as a gift and decided to install them on my 20 year old stratocaster. Having never changed pickups before I was at first intimidated by the idea, but the instructions were clear and easy to follow. The process was easier than I expected . At the same time I cleaned up my guitar and put on a new, different colored pickguard. I love the new, stronger, and what seems to me smoother sound. I recommend these pickups to anyone. I now have new looking and great sounding guitar that is more fun than ever to play.

                Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

                I have an old strat plus that had these pickups in it. I've always liked the sound so when I built my own strat, these pickups were my first choice. I'm no expert on guitar pickups but these remind me of the late 50's early 60's strat pickups but without all the hum. Very easy to install, good instructions on their website. I play country, blues, rock and a little jazz. These pickups sound great for all of those styles. I know everyone has their own preferences when it comes to pickups. I really love these pickups!

                Hands down, These are the best pick-ups that I have ever used. I put these pickups in place of 2 Texas specials and a Seymore Duncan Pearly Gates Plus. If you play Blues or like the sound of Buddy Guy, then these are for you plus they eleminate the single coil hum. Great sound.
