What a terrific sound! No surprise. Rob makes great stuff.
Really nice playing too!
Just installed a Nashville Lion, SRV Tiger and a Lion King to replace the Fender noiseless pickups in my Deluxe Nashville Tele.
What an improvement! Rob's offerings are top notch.
Thanks for sharing the video.
Very nice playing and great tone!
He is the tele pup guy to us, but, his Tiger strat pups are to regular strat pups what his tele pups are to brand x tele pups. If you have any crazy ideas that requires weird taps or RWRP he just does it in his stride as he makes them all to order. They are just a killer bargain as well. He tapped the middle strat pups in my #1 to kinda drop out of the way of the tele pup when in series to avoid what would have been an enormous volume bass boost, and it favors the tele side tone wise but just adds a bit of springy stratness to the tone. I know this thread is total fan boyism, but when was the last time you spent so little for such a vast improvement? I used the example of the Wallymart guitar to kinda acentuate the point. Yes, most after market pickups will make that guitar sound better, but how many will make it sound great? Its like stepping into an old pair of Levis. It just feels natural and effortless. I actually had a SD Broadcaster (one of my previously fave pickups) in the bridge before the Cavs. I was always finding myself 'digging' into the strings subconciously trying to get some snarl and bark. The Huge side of the Twin Lion is just effortless. Dont even get me started on the Lion King, that one is like playing a chior of angels!
I cant wait to order a 4pup set for Wally!
Thanks for commenting on the SRV Tiger. I'm really intrigued by those, especially the set with the Bengal Tiger bridge. Might have to try a set.
I really need to hit the pawnshops.
Absolutely killer! I put the "Bakersfield Lion and Lion King" in a SX and I have just about got it worn out! I will replace the neck before long. Love hearing budget guitars hanging with the best of them! Thanks for sharing!
Nice!! The Bakersfield is one size of Robs offerings that intrigues me very much. How are you liking yours?
Also intrigued by the Bakersfield...
If your into Don Rich, James Burton and Roy Nichols.
Rob's Bakersfield is the one you need.
I've got a Fat/Bakersfield Lion in a partscaster. The Bakersfield tap is nice and twangy, still has some meat though.
Hit the switch and I'm into the "Fat Zone".
I have it paired with the SRV Tiger neck pickup. Another of Rob's great offerings.
Not hard to say good things about Cavalier Pickups.

So I haven't ordered the Bengal Tiger set for my Strat yet. But I did end up ordering a Lion King/Nashville Tele set. Couldn't help myself. Looking forward to installing them. And thank you for helping me by posting your most excellent video.
Re: light and ringy cheap guitar
I've been surprised by inexpensive gear that sounds good and played a few expensive whale turds.
It doesn't hurt that the player can actually play. That just might be a factor, but who knows?
Sorry, I have been away. The Bakersfield Lion in my opinion has the twang sound I have always wanted.
I think next I will try a Bakersfield/Huge to get even more distance between taps and for that light wind microphonic type overtone mojo.
Very, very, very nice!
I'm willing to bet that guitar sounded better than my name brand guitars BEFORE you changed the pickups...I'm sure they're great but you can't buy talent, nice playing.
To hell with the pups (not really) you can play!!!
listened to this again and think:
- old guys rule
- love the bodiless neck in the background
- I'm stealing some of those smoove moves
