    i have been thining about changing the pick-ups on my squier P-bass(look at the thread in repair to find out why) and i the picks-ups that caught my eye where active(Di-Marzio slit P). How hard will it be to change, im not planning on changing them myselves but i don't know if i needed a whole new circut to accomidate them plus i don't know if the pickups need a 2 tonal knobs and one volume because the squier only has one. Maby somebody should make a sticky explaing the differance anywho im confused and i need help. thanks

    The Dimarzio Split P pickup is NOT active. It's passive. Dimarzio don't make any active bass pickups. So it's a pretty straightforward swap, the pickups should come with wiring instructions.
