    I'm clearing out all the gear I don't use right now and I've had these for a while. They came in a Fender '62 Reissue that I returned to stock after purchasing. Here's a description from SD.

    Basslines' APB-2 Lightnin' Rods are active replacement pickups that will energize your Fender P Bass with fat, present tone and warm, woody mids. The Lightin' Rods pickup's vintage looks hide a modern preamp. The fully discrete, ultra-quiet single-battery preamp delivers low-impedance output with excellent dynamic range and provides up to 2,000 hours of continuous battery life. A direct replacement, the APB-2 pickups require no instrument modifications. Basslines includes a wiring diagram, mounting hardware, pots, and battery clip with the Lightnin' Rods active pickups.

    And here is a link to Guitar Center's page:

    Yes, I believe it is volume and tone pots with a preamp built into the pickups themselves, like EMGs.

    Bump for great pickups. I love my P/J rods. They make flats come alive.

    No active pre, just active p'up that are very battery friendly.
