The pickup is in essence a mini-bucker for 4 strings. Would the Seymour Duncan SM-3B Seymourized Mini Humbucker Pickup with a blade setup instead of separate pole pieces be a total disaster? I am looking at upgrading the pickups on an Epiphone EB-3 clone. The neck pickup might end up being the Dimarzio mudbucker replacement as to my knowledge Seymour Duncan does not make anything comparable. I recall the Dimarzio pickups cleaning up EB-0 basses in a huge way.
