The Lace Sensor Red Silver Blue Loaded Pickguard Makes it Easy to Mod Your Strat!
All wired up and ready to go, the Red Silver Blue loaded pickguard utilizes the red, silver and blue Sensor single coils to add a variety of tones to your guitar. Lace Sensor’s unique radiant Field Barrier system that surrounds both the coil and magnets, reducing noise from a 60-cycle hum. The patented Lace Micro Combs replace traditional bobbins, yielding a wider tonal range and better string balance than traditional pickups.
The Sensor Blue neck pickup offers a slightly increased output with a warm 50's humbucking sound, the Sensor Silver middle pickup offers a fat 70's single coil sound with increased output and more midrange and the Sensor Red in the bridge position provides hotter than hot output with a fat, punchy humbucking tone.
Lace Sensor Red Silver Blue Pickguard Features
- Lace Sensor Blue with a warmer 50's humbucking sound
- Lace Sensor Silver with a fat 70's single coil sound
- Lace Sensor Red offers the hottest output of the Sensor Series
Unlike ordinary pickups, Lace Sensors generate 36 separate magnetic sensing fields which, in the areas where they contact the string, read the string's 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 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 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 sustain is increased dramatically while the string holds its true pitch for the duration of the note.
