Sidwinder pickup in EBO & EB3

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Orpheus55, Aug 31, 2017.

  1. Simple question. Is the sidewinder pickup in the Epiphone EB3 the same as the one in the short scale EBO? I neverr play the mini bridge pickup in my EB3, and hate the long neck and dive.

    From their product literature I'd be led to believe it is. You could always email their sales or customer service department and ask.

    On the Gibson EB-0/3 models, both used Gibson's PU-601 sidewinder (aka: "Mudbucker") in the neck position. The only difference I'm aware of is the EB-0 had a nickel cover while the EB-3 had a chrome cover. The coils and internals were the same for both.
