After seeing that kid Pete O'Hanlon in The Strypes laying waste to the low end with an old Epiphone Rivoli and an SVT-CL/810e, I believe it has finally inspired me to restore that old 1960 Gibson EB-0 I have out in the garage, and that project starts Tuesday. But when I bought it, someone replaced the mudbucker with a DiMarzio Model One, and I want a real mudbucker, not some cleaned up version of one. Unfortunately, EMG doesn't make a mudbucker replacement yet, so that leaves either coping with new mudbuckers which I find quite inferior or paying out the wazoo for an old one, which I'd rather not do. The big mudbucker names that get thrown around here are Novak and Artec. And from what I'm reading, the Novak actually does a pretty good job at recreating the magic and does it better than the Artec, but dang, those Artecs are inexpensive. So not being someone who wants to spend even a cent more than I have to, I'll call on you all who have tried both to give me your opinions. I'll also ask for other recommendations if you have any. TIA!
