I can't decide between these two. At first, I was totally set on the 800 because it had the active pickups, so I preordered one factory direct. But after reading some of the threads here on active vs passive pickups, and seeing how almost everyone likes passive pickups better (even if you don't directly say that, it's the message I'm picking up), I'm thinking about the SR3000 too. It has passive full-range pickups and a nice hard wood body. It's heavier but the lows sound really nice. I havn't had the chance to try out the 800 yet. Any opinions on these two basses or on active vs passive pickups?
