Chrome Domes

A Fender Strat on Steroids

The Lace Pickups Chrome Domes have been praised for both their "sweet, rounded tones" and simultaneously described as sounding like "a Strat on steroids." This was accomplished by modifying a guitar pickup already known for its bell-like tone and rich history, the original Gold Sensor pickup.

Fender Lace Sensor

We took the Gold Sensor, long a favorite of such artists as Eric Clapton, and "slammed and crammed" it with "hotter magnetic", and reverse wound the middle pickup, then wrapped the pickups in chrome-plated heavy brass. The sound is very classic Stratocaster and a perfect replacement for the Fender Lace Sensor!

We specifically upgraded it, and did some very direct tweaking with the coil, so it gives a sweeter, more rounded tone, but with a lot more punch. This "turbo charging" results in sweet highs that don't pierce, and solid lows that don't boom with a lot of power. If there was ever a hot rod vintage Lace Sensor pickup, this is the one. Upgrade your old Fender Strat with the electric pickup made for Fender, Lace Guitar Pickups - The Chrome Dome electric pickup by Lace Music.
