    Cavalier Bakersfield.

    None more twangy as Nigel Tufnel might say.

    I put some Cavalier humbucker in my Epiphone Les Paul. Love them and recommend them especially for the price.

    I have Bill Lawrence Keystones and can't imagine using any other Telecaster guitar pickups unless they are Bill Lawrence Micro-coils, Cavaliers, or Don Mare's.
