    Does anyone know anything about this bass? On the official site it appears to be a passive bass, but there is also mention of a 'bass boost.' Does anyone know if this is active or passive?

  2. The fact it has a mentioned EQ hits at it being active, ill investigate further tho

    My BTB is 18v active pre and pickups, which is nice :D

    Is that the same Phat-II used on the GSR? If so, then yeah it's active.

    Would I be able to use it as a passive bass? I mean, would it run without a battery and have the same output as a passive bass, just without the option of using the EQ?

  5. If you put a switch in so that you could choose between passive or active, and thats if the only active part in it is the bass boost
