    hi there , im about to purchase a epiphone ebo short scale bass and have saw alot of comments about setting it up yourself rather than the factory setting , how do you do this ,

    for instance getting rid of hums ? how do you achieve this , and raising or lowering the bridge ,

    i am so ... so .... confused ?
    any help would be greatly appreciated

    I am no expert on these basses, but I hate to see an unanwered question.
    One of the problems with any bass with one single coil bass, including the short scale EB0 and the bronco bass, is that they put one cheap single coil in there, and you are always going to have hum. I solved that on my son's bronco by putting a humbucker on it, and later I am also going to add a bridge postion j pickup.

    Hope this helps,
