    Please forgive me if this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find any posts on it. I've got a Fender Deluxe Active J Bass (Mexican), and I want to rewire the actives to go passive. I really only need 2 questions answered:
    1. Can I still use the stock pickups or do I need new ones ?
    2. Can anyone supply me with a schematic of what to do to accomplish this?

    Thanks friends!!!!

  2. I believe that the pickups can still be used. The pickups themselves are passive.
