I'm going to buy the Ibanez BTB 455QM soon, and would like to know if the pick ups are passive/active. I want to buy new pickups when it arrives, because I like EMG's better than the Bartolini's, and Ibanez pick ups. I'm pretty much an idiot when it comes to electronics on guitars, so if anyone could help, then that would be great...And if anyone can tell me what model of pick up to use, that would be awesome. Thanks. BTB 455QM - http://www.ibanez.co.jp/products/eb_page.php?PAGE_ID=219&COLOR=CL02&AREA_ID=2 You are all pieces of ****. Thank you, and I hope you die.
