Just picked up a used Ibanez SR600. been playing guitar for the better part of 20 years but never really did more than fiddle on a few basses before. I bought this 100% because it felt good on the neck and frets. I don't know what style the electronics are best for, but I like how it plays unplugged. I want well rounded...something that does everything OK rather than one thing well. I figure I can deal with that later though. Right now I need to find an amp. 1) This bass I understand has an Active EQ, but passive pickups. Is this still considered an Active system and thus would I use the Active input on a bass amp? 2) What's the 0dB and -15 or -16dB on the amps? I assume that the lower dB is another term for the active input?
