    Anyone compare Onamac’s Vintage Tele set to Cavalier Nashville Lion set?
    Just curious about the differences or similarities

    I looked on the Onamac site and closest thing they had to compare are their 7.5K A5 bridge
    pickups but with that not too close as the Nashville Lion has a DCR of ~ 8.2K. Maybe the Cavalier
    51/52 Lion would be closer. I have the Lion and tapped Lion/Fat Lion but haven't heard the Onamac
    ones so far.
    (Disclaimer - Yes I know all about the inductance vs resistance "phenomena" originally posted by
    Bill Lawrence on his website 2 or so decades ago.)

    I've owned sets from both winders. They provide good products at a fair price. :cool:
