    Epiphone EB-0 pickup

    A customer brought one of these Short scale Bass EB-0 ,here today for me to see if i can do something with the pickup as it is terribly muddy sounding .
    I guess its one of those Mudbuckers ..which is what some sort of sidewinder ? maybe not .I measured the dcr & it reads 1.2k . I will be a day or so before i get a chance to get inside of it to look at it . I know the sidewinders I've made are really bright & maybe a good remedy for this .
    Any way just wondering what have you guys done to improve the tone of these ?

    That's a sidewinder but check that DCR again because 1.2k sounds very low. I'd think it should be in the 12k-24k vicinity.

    Original Gibsons were about 20,000 turns of 42 per coil 14.5K per coil and 31 or 61 henries total- not sure which as my notes are a little blurry there. Crazy. 29K total in series
