Hey Guys, Been away from the forums awhile, but good to be back. Sometimes, you just have to step away from the computer for awhile and put everything in perspective. Anyways, got a new Epiphone Thunderbird Reverse IV for my 31st birthday and have been having fun modifying it to suit my needs. Im stumped right now though because I dont know what pickups to choose. Does anyone know if the EMG 35 DCs will fit this bass and will they work? Im an EMG fan of sorts, but Im also considering the old school route on this bass. I have found many different wiring schematics for the thunderbird. Right now, I am using (2) 500k pots for the 2 volumes, and a 250k for the tone with a .47cap. This gives me a really thick and thuddy tone, but Im really wanting more of that clangy, rickenbacker sound, something with more top end and midrange cut. I still have the stock Epi pickups, which Im wanting to swap out for the New Gibson TB plus pickups. Anyone have these pickups in their Epi? Or do you have a recent model Gibson with these pickups? What are the pots in your Epi/Gibson? Caps? Finally, does anyone have any cool Bass Pod XT settings for their Thunderbird that you wouldnt mind sharing? Thanks for the info and I would be curious to know your thoughts on the Thunderbirds. Later.
