    F9F87EE2-7E31-48F5-8C53-EE3608639075.jpeg About a month ago I emailed Rob at Cavalier and said I was looking for a hard rocking bridge pickup for my Esquire. I was thinking about the Humongous Lion, and he agreed. He emailed me back amd said he was going to wind it the next day and ship it. I received it two days later.

    I took it out of the box and I was amazed at the weight of this monster. I swear it must weigh a pound. I own a half dozen tele bridge pickups and this thing dwarfs them all.

    I began to think it was more than I had bargained for.

    I had it installed today and I was wrong. It’s EXACTLY what I had bargained for: A high output, well constructed bridge pup that delivers muscle without becoming a humbucker-like pup. Rocks really hard, yet it never truly loses its teleness. I actually have a nice headache from playing for about an hour, tweaking the height adjustment, at high volumes.

    Well done, Rob. I appreciate your quality product and excellent customer service. I’ll be back.

    Rob is a gem. I've been using his pickups for around the last ten years.

    Glad this worked out for you.

    I will definitely be buying from him in the future, also for an esquire - this PU seems like the one I'll go for! Thanks for the review!

    I also have a Gibson SG 50's Tribute with P90s like yours - absolutely fantastic guitars!
