    I recently got a rock bass by Warwick for cheap as it has some electrical issues I got it working once already and it sounds ok .... Nothing compared to my actual Warwick but.... It's stopped working again something came loose and I have yet to look.

    Anyway I kinda really want to have a passive bass in my collection I'm just wondering if this sounds like a stupid idea or feasible to some with more experience

    If the pickups are passive you'll need new pots, 250k or 500k.

    Yeah if they're passive just pull the board and swap in some pots.

    Cool thanks I dunno why pickups seem intimidating but I don't see it being a problem
