Is the EB-0 set up like starts where you have a hole going straight through the post, and then wrap around, or does it have a slot in the middle of the post that you put the string in, and then wind?

On the former, for my start copy, I simply cut it as close to the post as possible. On the latter, for my bass, I give myself about 2-3 inches spare string for wrapping.

EDIT: warned for spam.

^^You Cut the string off after you have wrapped and it set in place and kind of tuned right?

From pictures of it, it looks like you poke the string into the hole in the center of the peg, and wind it like that. You really don't have to cut them, but if you do leave enough room to wrap the string around the post 2-3 times.
Nope, no sig here.

I know my strings and I know my bass. Anyways, as I said, my bass has a hole in the centre of the post (as in centre if you're looking at it from the top down as a circle, not centre as in the centre of the side), you put the string in and it holds it in place, so I have to cut it before putting it in.

EDIT: I personally find 2-3 inches beyond the post (put the strings through the bridge and the nut, and under the string tree) gives enough string for a few wraps without it looking messy. As far as I'm concerned, string should never be wrapped over string, but that's probably just me being me.

Oh yea, if you have that nifty little hole, thats what I do.

But I was talking about your Strat Copy, that just lets you silde it through.

You said cut it as close to the post as possible. I was just making sure it's done AFTER the winding...

Oh God yeah, you'd have to be an idiot if you did it before winding You'd never get a single wrap otherwise. This is the problem I had with exams way back when in secondary school- writing stuff assuming the person reading it had some knowledge about what I meant.

this. I think your EQ probably is limiting the G string some and the thickness is making it seem less bright to you.

But it could be said that old strings are great too, but I'm a little pissy with mine. They sounded awesome like a month ago after (put them on about April) so I'm loving strings that are kinda just before death. Damn strings! But nothings better than bright strings though, damn you! Making me want new ones!!!
