Hi I've been looking to for a replacement pickup in the market lately, and I think I've more or less settled on the EMG 35 DC. I do have a question about wiring though. I understand the pickup is an active pickup, but is it possible to wire it into a passive bass? Say a P-bass or a Fleabass, is it possible to swap out the pickups for that? Would I need to carve out any compartments into the bass to house a battery somewhere?
David on youtube manage to replace the stock pickup on his green Fleabass with a EMG 35 DC, and if I remember correctly, the Fleabass is a passive bass, so how did he install an active pickup on it? I'm sorry if I'm asking silly questions, I'm still fairly new to the whole pickup wiring replacement thing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MonpZ0o0RuU
