Fender Deluxe Questions

    I was shopping around the other day and decided to try out the Fender American Deluxe Precision. I liked the feel of the basses overall and it seemed very versatile and full bodied but there are things I'd like to change about it if I do buy it.

    First the electronics. Are the Fender deluxe pickups passive? I was a bit put off by the clankiness and coldness of the highs. I thought maybe having an active/passive switch would help. Is that possible or would I need to buy new passive pickups?

    I was also thinking that maybe the bass could benefit from a higher mass bridge instead of those thin plates that they have. Has anyone replaced the bridge on their Fender deluxe bass? Maybe with something like a Gotoh 206? What did you use? Did it help?
