    I like the Epiphone EB-3 bass guitar, but it just doesnt sound all that good compared to some other basses of the same price. It has a mini-humbucker, which shouldnt be too hard to upgrade, but I'm not sure about this "Sidewinder" neck pup that it has.

    What, exactly, is a sidewinder pickup, and is it upgradeable?

    You should ask Mike Watt about that. He uses almost the same model and his sounds great after the mods he put it through.

    I remember reading a post about his mods, but I cant seem to find it anymore.
