Billy Corgan - Lace Sensor Pickups

Lace Sensors (blue, silver &amp; red)
Lace Sensors (blue, silver &amp; red)

For pickups, Billy uses Fender's Lace Sensors. He says they add the bottom end of an SG, with the cutting tone of a strat to his strats. He uses the blue pickup in the neck, silver in the middle, and red on the bridge. It also has a five- position pickup selector switch which he installed himself. The "colors" are merely product names that reflect different sounds, all of the pickup covers are white:

Each color reresents a different voicing. Gold is classic vintage Strat® tone, Silver is an overwound pickup with added midrange harmonics and bass. Blue is warm and loud like a '50s era humbucker. Red is a very high output pickup with lots of midrange and crunch like a contemporary hot humbucker.
