BTW, if you have an Epi Explorer (as I just acquired), the pickups are different sized than the Gibson T Birds pups shown by EMG.
Just learning more about the Epis but they call all of them the same thing on their website, even though they have 3 different pick up models on them.... I was ready to replace the pup, but its actually sounding pretty good and right now a few down on my list of improvements.
BTW, just gigged for the first time after a new set up on my EpiExplorer and impressed with its ability to cut through vs my Active Fender.... great sustain... could be the brass nut... I was wary because of the wide nut and fret board, but there is some interesting things with the Explorer... built in arm rest!
