    What options do I have for replacement pickups on the Epiphone Les Paul bass? I'm aware that Rio Grande makes the pitbull, but what other brands are there?

    Is the pickup housing exactly the same size as a guitar humbucker and will rail-humbuckers meant for guitars work?

    Thanks and merry Christmas!

    I would suggest checking out a set of Novaks humbuckers. They'll retrofit your Epi, and they are built far far better than the Rio Grandes. I've traded email with Curtis regarding some custom pickups and he's a very cool person too.
