mec active to passive?

  1. I'm just about to buy a warwick corvette 5 with mec gold active pickups. But I like the passive ones better. Don't ask. Is there a way to bypass the active electonics of the pickups? I can't run that hot of a signal.

    Have you considered passive pickups and a preamp?
  3. yeah, I have been considering upgrading to a villex system or other. I just want a system that I can also bypass everything except volume and it will still sound good. I've heard good things about villex so I might try them out.
