For as long as I've had this bass I've liked the unplugged tone, but there's something that isn't quite right to my ears when amplified. From playing around on a friend's Jazz and my old RBX170, I think I've figured out what the problem is; active electronics. Passive basses for some reason just sound more 'natural' to me, and that's what I'm missing currently with the Cort. So I think I'm going to convert it solely to Passive. The Cort currently has volume, blend and stacked bass/treble knobs, a mid-frequency switch and coil selector switch for the humbucker. My idea was to probably upgrade the pickups (I'm thinking Seymour Duncans, but I'm open to suggestion) and change the controls to V/B/T, keeping the coil selector, but changing the mid switch to a series/parallel switch. I don't have much experience with electronics etc, so does that sound feasible, or even worth doing? I'd like to hear any other wiring suggestions etc that you might have as well. Thanks.
