    There are corvettres that come with active electronics....

    I know some warwicks have puch/pull knob to turn into active... dont know if corvettes are one of those...

    But you can always mod it....
  3. Warwick makes both a passive and an active model. If you check their website, you'll find out all you need to know!

    I have a Corvette Standard Active. Pulling up the volume pot bypasses the preamp, but it's not a hard bypass as the pickups still need juice from the 9-volt battery. But keeping the bass in bypass mode will extend battery life.

    Corvette Standards are available in 4 string passive, 4-string active, 5-string active, and 6-string active.
