The Alumitone® Western Humbucker is the most exclusive pickup available from Lace. Not only does it feature our signature and proprietary Alumitone® technology with superior tone, and dead quiet operation; each one has been painstakingly and meticulously hand tooled by professionals.
Both of these qualities together, and an EXTREMELY limited production run guarantee that you will own one of the greatest pickups on Earth, that are also some of the most rare, and most desirable.
These hand tooled Humbuckers are perfectly at home in any set up, and really excel in high gain usage. Perfect for Rock, Jazz, Metal, and Country-Western. There are no other pickups like these in the world.
This radical departure from pickup design is aluminum based, rather than copper. Result: less resistance, higher output coupled to a "current driven design" as opposed to conventional voltage based pickups.
The aluminum water jet cut exoskeleton is then matted to a micro winding using 90% less fine copper wire, a low impedance/high impedance pickup is then created.
Broadband response like our single coil version, but voiced for the classic mid range response humbucker tone. Installing two of these Alumitones® on your guitar will save you 1/3lb of weigh and increase your guitars resonance!

"Overdriving the Alumitone brings out its' great performance, as it cuts through the mix and excels where most single coils start to run off." "The new look for pickups really sets off my guitar like no one else in the room."
