Hey folks, I'm looking for a replacement pickup for my Epiphone Mandobird IV.
I play it in Ukulele tuning (low G-C-E-A) currently with a string set of 11.5 - 16 - 24 - 34 but I will switch to the 10 - 14 - 24 - 36 combination soon.
My problem at the moment is that it sounds to »muddy« with the factory pickup. I think it misses clarity, focus, and articulation.
First of all, I will try to address that issue by getting a wider tonal range with less overlap with the string choice. Furthermore, I'd like to add a treble bleed circuit to the wiring. And finally, I'd like to have a more transparent sounding pickup.
Does anyone have similar experiences with their Mandobird IV and give any suggestions for the pickup choice?
