OVERVIEW

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.

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.

First of all let me just say how utterly amazing these pickups are - they have made my strat sound more like a strat than ever and have reduced the amount of noise coming out of my amp, especially when using Overdrive and Compression effects.

Now for the downside - when thepickups arrived they were tatty around the edges and one of them was covered in black marks, as if they'd been uninstalled from a previous user's guitar and repackaged. I was under the impression I was buying brand new pickups but I feel like I've been given secondhand ones.

I urrmed and aaard about sending them back but in the end decided that because they were such a reputable brand, built to last, I'd get them installed and see what they were like. They work perfectly fine and I'm very happy with their performance.

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

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.

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

    I bought a set of gold Lace Sensors as a replacement for the Texas Specials in one of my Strats. I find they give a somewhat similar tone, but without the piercing highs I had before. What really impressed me was their noise performance - they have higher output than Texas Specials with much less noise. Overall, I'd say they're an excellent choice if you play rock or blues.

        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 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!

          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!!!

            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.

              These are simply the BEST pickups I have ever used in a fender. I have owned Duncans, Fender, and others. These are so smooth when overdriven and have excellent sustain because of their design. They accurately capture the sound of an overwound vintage single coil without all the hum. Ultra smooth, warm, crisp...I would recommend these to anyone who wants excellent tone for just about anything except metal. I have read reviews saying these sound "fake" , but I can't see how anyone could say that. If you have a nice OD pedal with an all-tube amp these own!!!

These are undoubtedly the best strat pickups around! They just sound brilliant and their sustain is unbelievable!

                  I own an E Series 1986 MIJ Fender Stratocaster that came with humbucker in the bridge with two single coils. I love the guitar but was eventually disappointed that I went with the humbucker in the bridge. I changed the pickups to a DiMarzio PAF and two Kinman 69's which I loved, but I was still not complete in my satisfaction with the humbucker in the strat.

                  I changed the whole pick-guard to a preloaded set of Lace Sensor Gold's and added the Clapton preamp boost circuit. Now I really hear what I was missing with this guitar. I love these pickups. I can get the clean crisp Knopfler sounds as well as the getting the Clapton tones that I love so much. I have started to recognise and appreciate my own sounds with these in my guitar. They are very inspiring.

                  Great performance when given overdrive and fantastic touch sensitivity. I love my Kinmans and will put them in another guitar but the Lace Sensor Golds have given new life to my most prized possession. I have a Marshall DSL40 and this amp loves these pickups.
