The Sensor Story

The entire Guitar 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 guitar pickups.

Unlike ordinary electric guitar pickups that read string vibration from 6 magnetic poles, Lace Sensors generate 36 separate magnetic "sensing" fields which, in the areas where they contact the string, "read" the strings' vibration. (Regular guitar pickups only generate anywhere from 4 to 12 fields).

Lace Guitar Sensors also have Radiant Field Barriers: metal slides which frame the inner core of the Sensor Pickup and perform two functions. 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 umbrella of a sensing field than that of standard magnetic pickups.

Less Noise, More Harmonics

As compared to standard guitar 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 Guitar Sensors can utilize the much lower energy magnets than ordinary electric guitar pickups, and this in turn bring about a whole new realm of properties. In regular guitar 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 Guitar 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.)
