    So I bought an epiphone eb-0 for $199 and I want to mod it. was thinking of putting a mustang bridge and pickups on it. I'll have to manufacture a full pickguard of course but was wondering if it would sound as fantastic as I'm hoping also, I can't find proper mustang bass drawings online, need to know where to place the pickups exatly, I plan on keeping the mudbucker.:bassist:
     
  2. I'd just go with a regular P pickup, if it were me. and a Hipshot bridge.

    I kinda like the way a mustang sounds plus i was keeping in line with the whole short scale motif.

    As a man who has taken apart far to many inexpensive instruments I will say unless your main goal is to be different and you are totally dedicated to that it is probably a better idea to simply buy a Squier VM Mustang bass.

    Finding a Mustang Bass bridge itself will be costly.

    I'm not married to the mustang bridge, just want something other than the 3 bolt that's on it. I'm just wondering if the mustang pickups would be an improvement really.

    the place i bought it from said they'd give me full credit towards a squire but that would mean spending another $100 on top of that. I like the feel of the eb-0, just want to improve the tone.

    There may be a way to mod the mudbucker to expand and un-muddy your tonal options. I don't have the info handy but it is worth looking for. It might cost you nothing more than a soldering iron ans a toggle switch.
