Lace Music has released three new pickup models: a Alumitone P-90, a low profile acoustic bass pickup, and crystal-adorned humbuckers.
Alumitone Aluma V90
The Aluma V90 incorporates the state of the art patented Alumitone technology with traditional P-90 “dog ear” looks. The V90 incorporates the ground breaking high definition zero noise “current driven” tone that is taking players to a new standard. For the first time the legendary P90 “dog ear” will be completely noise free without having to modify the guitar.
“As a huge fan of the P-90, I was extremely excited to be able to use the Lace version of a classic pickup. I no longer have to deal with noise interference due to lighting issues as in an arena” stated Josh Steely of the Chris Daughtry band. “The pickup is noiseless and still has the characteristics I love in P-90” further stated Steely.
Designed especially for bass guitar this new passive Lace Sensor bass pickup has an “Ultra Slim” profile that is only 5/16th tall in height. The height allows almost endless adaptations for either acoustic bass or solid body bass.
Single design size allows for four- or five-string bass guitars. The USAB Sensor can be surface mounted either with wood screws or a mar resistant 3M adhesive tape that is provided with the pickup. Simply slide the pickup under the strings for installation. No routing or cutting is required.
The USAB comes with a high quality cable and female end pin jack. The pickup jack can be permanently mounted if so desired. The pickup is humbucking in design and features no noise operation. The pickup consists of two Lace Sensor Micro Matrix Comb bobbins, and triple ceramic 8 magnets as part of this new design. It is passive in design, but can be used without any problems with an active pre amp.
The USAB pickup is available in black only and is shipping now. Suggested retail price is $169.99
Featuring patented Alumitone “current drive” design, the Blingbucker adds the glitz and polish for those players who want to make a dramatic sonic and visual statement. The Blingbucker is adorned with 10 pieces of Swarovski crystals, famous for their brilliancy.
Performance wise, the Blingbucker is rated the same output as the ground breaking “Deathbucker” humbucker. Truly zero noise free operation, light weight and incredible high definition tone is the sonic signature of the Blingbucker and all the patented Alumitone range of pickups. High definition tone for the guitar is the goal of design with an appearance that compliments any guitar.
The Blingbucker is available now. Suggested retail price is $199.99

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.

Mojotone will manufacture and market over 60 of their speaker cabinets and amp kits as “Licensed by Fender.”
This partnership marks Fender's recognition of Mojotone’s dedication to its craft, quality of products, and dependability of knowledge. Beginning November 29th and ranging from $327 - $1,016.
Amplifiers were among the first products to wear the official Fender seal. A qualified electronics technician by trade, Leo Fender developed his iconic amplifiers during the mid-1940s putting innovation at the forefront. To this day, Leo’s influence and innovative spirit can still be heard in today’s amps, as that same iconic, clean Fender tone continues to color new music around the world. As a result, the process for completing the exclusive licensing deal required Fender to carefully audit Mojotone’s amplifier kits, wiring diagrams, electronics, hardware, construction methods, and more to ensure this innovation carried on through the partnership. Mojotone’s many years of intense research, quality production, and favorable reputation solidified the deal.
Mojotone has always been determined to provide its customer base with the most sought-after parts with their insider industry-knowledge. They have spent the last 25 years helping musicians recreate what they deem to be the most famous and easily-recognized tones and aesthetics in the music industry.
