I have a Warwick Corvette standard. I love the way this thing feels but the stock passive MEC p/u 's are really noisy. Would there be any advantage to replacing them with active p/u's since there is no onboard preamp. I do use an outboard preamp (Tech 21 sansamp DI as a stomp box). I guess another way of asking this is do active p/u's have any advantage over passive when they are run as passives? If I do not use the active MEC's I'll probably use a humbucking J replacement. Dimarzio's maybe.
