Overview

The Sensor Gold - World Class Tone in a 3-pack of single coils. 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. Gold 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 Gold 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 Gold 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 guitar pickups, the Lace Sensor Gold 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 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 the Lace Sensor Gold, 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 includes a three-inch mini data CD that includes all its latest wiring diagrams in color along with Lace's most current pickup and guitar catalogs. Also includes a warranty card and other useful information regarding Lace Music Products.

The Lace Sensor Gold pickups are amazing pickups. I put a set of these on my Fender '50s Stratocaster and it sounds amazing. There is no hum to these pickups, they are very clean. These are PERFECT for older classic rock/blues, these are a huge BANG for the bucks, at $150 these things are better than the Texas Specials(in my opinion) but cost $70 bucks less! PLUS, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, George Harrison, Pete Townshend, Buddy Guy, Joe Walsh and many others use Lace Sensor Pickups! If professionals are using these there has got to be something to them. BUY THESE PICKUPS!!!

With names like Clapton, Townshend and Buddy Guy being associated with these p'ups, I was really expecting a lot. I was disappointed. I have been playing guitar for 28 years and I really had to struggle with the fact that these did not look like "normal" singlecoil pickups with the magnet/pole pieces. Make sure you are OK with playing an instrument that looks like it should be plugged into a game console, not an amp. If you can hang with the looks, we'll move on to the sound. Output is low, very vintage and would not overdrive my SS amp. If you like "Texas wound" or hot/hotter pickups that will push an amp to breakup, this set is not for you. The Lace Gold sound was not quite sterile but was very clean with even signal response and seemed to lack the character or nuances that a set of staggered pole pickups with a stronger magnetic field impart. I am guessing that sound men/engineers probably love the Lace Sensor pickups. They are decent pickups, just seemed to lack flavor or individuality. If you want a low output, pure, even signal, these would be a great starting point.

      Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

      Get ready to hear your amp. These pickups range from very acoustic to very strat like based on how you set your amp. Mine are very quiet with no shielding, If you're considering these it is important to remember that they do not sound "exactly" like conventional single coils. That being said, they're my favorite pickups and have their own mojo. I play primarily clean through fender/vox amps, but these pick ups allow you to turn up the gain without losing articulation. Love them and can't recommend them enough, thanks Lace

        Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

        I have a 1990 Deluxe Strat Plus that had the Red, Silver, Blue Lace set in it. I was never wild about those pickups, and was looking for more of a traditional Strat sound without changing the guitar entirely. So I dropped in these Golds and they do the job. A lot more of a traditional Strat sound with the Golds than with the Red, Silver, and Blue. So now, effectively, this guitar is a Strat Plus, not a Deluxe Strat Plus since the only difference was the pickups. They are completely noiseless as well. They do have a bit of a different feel than a vintage pickup, though. Not quite sure how to explain it....less elastic? Less sproingy? They're definitely a bit compressed sounding. But overall I like them.

            Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

            I have a Squier 70's Modified Strat that came with Duncan Designed SC-101 pickups. They sounded really good in the music store, but horrible once I took the guitar home. I tried adjusting them to improve the sound, but to no avail. Thus, I had to upgrade the pickups, as the guitar wasn't worth having otherwise. Did lots of research regarding price/quality, and decided on the Lace Golds. These pickups brought my Squire back from the grave, and it now sounds as good as an American Fender. They don't work so well for metal or heavier tones, but for clean to semi-clean, they are truly the best. They add color and depth to most everything I play. The tone is so rich,smooth and articulate, you will swear that your playing ability instantly improves. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

                I used these to replace the Standard Strat pickups I put in my Strat clone. What a diiference!! The standards sounded ok but these are the real deal. No matter which pickup selection position the switch is in, these give that great Fender singel coil sound. Highly recommend these to anyone looking for that classic sound.

                  I have a old strat plus that some one put Fender custom shop pu's in and I just wasent satisfied with the sound so I ordered a pre wired pick guard with lace censer gold installed it and I must say this was a great improvement it sounds so much better than I expected, I'm hooked on lace censer gold and I will keep this guitar as long as I'm playing.

                  Hum problems

                  By Mark

                  from California

                  Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

                  I bought these because less noise is always better and I wanted to put them in my Buddy Guy signature strat to make it even more like what he actually plays anyway but I've had no luck. I had the local guitar shop tech put them in even though I was an electronics tech previously just to make sure it was done perfectly and I now have hum and more noise than I ever had with the stock MIM pups. You would immediately think it's a bad ground when you see it go away with a hand on the strings but he rechecked everything and it's well grounded and he even added another ground connection after to see if that fixed it but it didn't. Now obviously I know he's done something wrong that he's going to have to figure out still and it's not that these normally do that (tons of people love how hum and noise free these are) but if someone who has installed a million sets of pickups has this problem simply wiring them in just as the instructions say to on the most common guitar on the planet then that's a problem.

                  Comments about Lace Sensor Gold Guitar Pickups 3-Pack S-S-S Set:

                  I received my lace sensor pickups as a gift and decided to install them on my 20 year old stratocaster. Having never changed pickups before I was at first intimidated by the idea, but the instructions were clear and easy to follow. The process was easier than I expected . At the same time I cleaned up my guitar and put on a new, different colored pickguard. I love the new, stronger, and what seems to me smoother sound. I recommend these pickups to anyone. I now have new looking and great sounding guitar that is more fun than ever to play.
