The Sensor Gold™ - World Class Tone. We have built these world famous patented pickups since 1985. Used exclusively by Fender® until 1996. The entire line is available directly through Lace Music Products. The pickups have the same specifications with the same great tone. Gold Lace Sensor 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 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.

Unlike ordinary pickups, Lace Sensors 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). Lace Sensors also have Radiant Field Barriers: metal slides which frame the inner core of the Sensors and perform two function. The first is to shield the Sensor from the outside noise and 60 cycle hum. The second is to produce a broader yet more concentrated umbrellas of sensing field that standard magnetic pickups.
Less Noise, More Harmonics
As compared to standard pickups, 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, 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 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 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.
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.)
