Hi all, I asked in this thread for some help IDing a Dean bass,and dedpool1052 confirmed that it was an Edge 10 for me. He said that someone probably converted the pickups from active to passive, since there is no battery case anymore. Can someone confirm that for me by looking at it and the wiring? If so, did they just snip out the case and solder the wires? There are two pairs of wires that have the ends soldered and loose that are from the pickups. And if that is the case, is it simply a matter of getting a new battery case and soldering it in? Sorry if the questions are noobish. This IS my first bass, and I've not done any electronics modding on my guitars yet. I have a friend that mods and builds who I can ask about this and have do some work, but he's a couple hours away and I won't see him until New Year's. I'd like to know what's up with the bass before I bring it to him. Thanks! Here's the pictures of the pickups and the inside.
