    Yes, there are active pickups for bass. In fact, active pickups are a heck of a lot more popular for bass than for guitar. Duncan makes several models, as does EMG.

    ??? you want the same sound for your bass ???

    Guess the only way to do that is to put GL Screamin' Demons in it, a really short-scale neck (25"?), and weak-ass skinny strings! Tuned up an octave no doubt.

    :D

    P.S. Search the archives dude, there have been many such discussions already.
