    I've got a 1990's Epi Rivoli which has just had a 1960's USA EBO pickup put in it.

    The reason for doing this was to get an overall better tone and more output, but now i've got a really loud bass mush/mess of a noise.

    Its output is alot higher which i wanted, but i have to roll all the bass frequencies virtually off on the amp and boost the treble end to get anything barely useable. Only thing with this is that it now has a horrible tinny buzz. Also if i use a drive pedal some of the notes (paticuarlly A string, 12th fret) are so distorted it doesn't ring properly and sound terible.

    Now what can I do? Is it down to rubbish original wiring/pots/jacks? All i want is a woody 1960's psycheldelic tone that people have told me with the pickup swap i should be able to achieve.

    Anyway, enough waffle, any help out there?!?!?!?!
