I bought recently a 90's Epiphone Thunderbird Non-Reverse, made in Korea (it has that PBass / JBass pickups configuration). The bass is not too damaged and I want to make some mods to make it a masterpiece, most probably a Fenderbird.
I'm looking for a vintage deep and sharp sound, then I found out the ThunderBuckers - http://www.thunderbuckerranch.com/
- do you think the body can "hold" these pickups? With the proper shaping/carving, of course.
Will I need to get a new pickguard because of the neck pickup size/shape mismatch? If so, where can I found another one?
And does anyone tried to do this before? Can you share some samples of your final results?
Many thanks in advance and a happy new year!
