    Hey!
    I`ve got an Eiphone EB-0 and I`m thinking about to put a second pickup on it, cause there`s just one like you guess. Is that possible and if it is, what advantages would be there? Better sound, or what?

    Thanks for taking care!!

    Yes it's possible... just takes a little woodworking skill, a pickup, and some care. If I'm not mistaken, the EB-0 has a neck pickup... adding one nearer the bridge would allow you to mix in some more treble tone, and also blend between the two pickups. Epiphone already has a two pickup bass in this style, the EB-3 I think. These things have some serious low-end, and IMO, that's part of their charm...
