Lace Sensor Pickups Gold Loaded Stratocaster Pickguard
Lace Sensor Pickups Gold Loaded Stratocaster Pickguard represents the entire Sensor Pickup line is available directly through Lace Music Pickups. The Sensor pickups have the same specifications with the same great tone. Gold Lace Sensors are designed to duplicate an early Fender® single coil pickup. Crisp top end and bell-like tone, the Lace Sensor Gold™ utilizes the latest technology to provide excellent tone for today’s guitar players.
The Lace Sensor® family 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.Lace® Loaded Pickguards are pre-wired with quality components (250K full size pots, USA-Made switch, NTS Caps) all on a 3-ply pickguard. Includes knobs and switch knob. Designed to drop-in to your Strat® and connect with only 2 wires. Call your local Lace retailer for custom configurations and colors.
Less Noise, More Harmonics
As compared to standard pickups, Lace Sensors 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 Sensor Pickup, delivering a more complex tonal response.
Increased Sustain, Truer Pitch
Since they operate so efficiently, Lace Sensors can utilize the much lower energy magnets than ordinary electric pickups, and this in turn bring 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 Lace Sensors, 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.
String Clearance Measurements for Fender Lace Guitar Pickups
ADJUSTMENT TIP: For optimum tone and output from our Sensors, we recommend adjusting the height to .170″ from string to pickup, or approx. the height of 2 dimes and a nickel. (REMEMBER string thickness applies to height – use bottom of string closest to pickup for measurement.) Music Styles: Vintage Rock, Blues, Country, and R&B, Funk
Think: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck
Sound: A classic 50’s Style single coil sound with a classy bell tone.
