This Lace prewired pickguard includes Sensor Emerald, Sensor Reverse Wound Silver, and Sensor Purple electric guitar pickups.
Sensor Emerald: Lace has built these pickups since 1985. Used
exclusively by Fender until 1996, Emerald pickups have the same
specifications with the same great tone. Emerald Lace Sensor pickups
have that Texas-inspired tone without the noise! It's everything you
want to play with the snap and bite of great southern rock sound.
Sensor Silver: Silver Lace Sensor pickups are designed to duplicate an
early Fender single coil pickup. With its reverse winding, this pickup
does even more to keep any hum at bay.
The Sensor Purple: Purple
Lace Sensor pickups have hot overwound single coil tone, between a
Burgundy and Blue Sensor. It is designed for the bridge or a P-90-type
tone in the neck.
Crisp top end and bell-like tone, the Lace
Sensor Purple utilizes the latest technology to provide excellent tone
for today's players.
The Lace Sensor Purple guitar pickup 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 guitar pickups.
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).
Lace Sensor 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
compared to standard pickups, it 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
it operates so efficiently, Lace Sensors can use much lower energy
magnets than ordinary guitar 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, 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 Sensor Emerald: That Texas-inspired tone without the noise! All you want for that style of music!
