A 3-pack of vintage-looking electric guitar pickups that reduce annoying hum and produce tones that are crisp and clear as a bell.
Lace Sensor Gold V-Series pickups have false pole pieces that give them a vintage look while their sound duplicates the sound of early Fender single-coil pickups. Sensor Gold pickups generate crisp top end and bell-like tone while reducing hum. Lace has built these world-famous, patented pickups since 1985, Lace pickups were used exclusively by Fender guitars for over a decade.
The Lace Sensor guitar pickup family has a unique, radiant field-barrier system that surrounds both the coil and the 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 guitar pickups, Lace Sensor Gold pickups generate 36 separate magnetic "sensing" fields which, in the areas where they contact the string, "read" the strings' vibration. (Regular pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields.)
The radiant field barriers of these pickups are actually metal slides that frame the inner core of the pickups and perform two functions: the first is to shield the pickup from outside noise and 60-cycle hum, while the second is to produce a broader yet more concentrated umbrella of a sensing field than that of standard magnetic pickups.
Less Noise, More Harmonics:
Compared to standard pickups, Lace Sensor Gold pickups read 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 pickup, delivering a more complex tonal response.
Increased Sustain, Truer Pitch:
Since they operate so efficiently, Lace Sensors Gold pickups 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 that they physically dampen, or drag on, the strings' vibration, reducing sustain and actually changing the pitch. But in Lace Sensor Gold pickups, 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.
With their pickups package, Lace includes a three-inch mini data CD that includes all the pickup's latest wiring diagrams in color, along with Lace's most current pickup and guitar catalogs. Also is a warranty card plus other useful information regarding Lace Music Products.

Comments about Lace Sensor Gold V-Series Electric Guitar Pickups 3-Pack:
I have a old strat plus that some one put Fender custom shop pu's in and I just wasent satisfied with the sound or looks so I ordered a pre wired pick guard with Lace Sensor Gold V-Series installed it and I must say this was a great improvement. It sounds so much better than I expected. I also love the classic look. I will definately be buying more Lace products.
Quick and easy to install.
