  1. Is it possible to make the MiM Fender Duluxe Active Jazz 18v> withh the pickups support it? I know that EMGs can but they are made so, but will the fender Noiseless?

    My Victor Bailey has noiseless pups and runs on 18volts. :)
     
  3. What would be the advantage of boosting the power on stock internals? I have the same preamp/pickups so I'm interested myself now that you mentioned it.

    The switch from 9 to 18volts would give you more headroom to work with. I've also noticed all my 18volt pre's are cleaner sounding than my 9 volt pre's.
