The Sensor Light blue - World Class Tone. Lace has built these world famous patented pickups since 1985. Used exclusively by Fender until 1996, these pickups have the same specifications with the same great tone. Light blue Lace Sensor pickups are designed to duplicate an early Fender single coil pickup.
Crisp top end and bell-like tone, it utilizes the latest technology to provide excellent tone for today's players.

The Lace Sensor Light Blue 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, 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).

The Lace Sensor Light Blue 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
As compared to standard pickups, the Lace pickup 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
Since it operates so efficiently, Lace Sensors can utilize much lower energy magnets than ordinary 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 Light Blue, 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.

    As reviewed by Mike on 7/17/2007

    Great pickup. I installed it in the bridge location of my American Stratocaster and it sounds amazing! It is quite a bit quieter than the standard strat pups but puts out an awesome tone. Sounds like a strat but with a bit more bluesy bite.

  • Still clean with some dirty bite

    As reviewed by wssixer on 3/23/2010

    After having this pickup for about 6 months for the honeymoon phase to wear off, I must say that this is a really nice pickup. It replaced my neck pickup on my 89 Squire II Strat and it breathed new life into the guitar. It really doesn't give up too much bell like highs, but adds a "smokey" blues tone when the volume is cranked and the tone is rolled down. I have it wired into a TBX tone pot so that may make a difference. It is a little hotter than the one I took out so I did have to mess with the height to balance out the volume with the mid pickup (still original for now). Quiet, punchy and adds just the right bluesy overdrive tones that I was looking for. I chose this over the regular lace sensor blue after playing a friend's strat (neck position). I thought the blue was a little too warm and fat. Overall, very pleased.
