    I just got a used Epiphone Eb0. I traded several things that were given to me so it's like getting a free bass. Can't argue with that!

    I was thinking it would be fun to add the following pickup near the bridge to get it closer to the Gibson SG bass - http://www.allparts.com/store/pickups-bass-pickups-pu-0419-010,Product.asp

    Anyone ever done this? I think it would be fairly straight-forward. Route the new pickup slot, drill a hole from there to the existing control cavity, drill a hole for a new volume pot, screw the pot in and wire the pickup to the new pot and the existing tone pot.

    Does that sound about right? What kind of pot do I need? Is there a good Gibson schematic that could help me out? Thanks a lot guys!

    250K or 500K audio taper. 500 is typically used for humbuckers. Your choice though. Cheers!
