The Lace 08052 Chrome Domes have been praised for both their "sweet, rounded tones" and simultaneously described as sounding like "a Strat on steroids". This was accomplished by modifying a pickup already known for its bell-like tone and rich history, the original Lace Gold Sensor. Lace took the Gold Sensor, a long-time favorite of such artists as Eric Clapton, and "slammed and crammed" it with "hotter magnetic", and reverse wound the middle pickup, then wrapped the pickups in chrome-plated heavy brass covers.
The low noise neck and middle pickups are wound at a vintage 6.0k DC resistance. The middle pickup is reverse-wound, reverse-polarity for hum-cancelling in the 2 and 4 positions on a five-way switch. The bridge pickup is wound hotter at 13.2k to provide punch and versatility.
Lace did some very direct tweaking with the coil, so it gives a sweeter, more rounded tone, but with a lot more punch. This turbo-charging results in sweet highs that don't pierce and solid lows that don't boom and a lot of power. If there was ever a hot-rod vintage Lace Sensor, this is the one.
