    My Ibanez EX Series has 2 passive J pickups in it....they are about the size of the J pickup in the Warwick FNA Jazzman...typical J size, I guess. They are EMG Selects. I would like to put in, maybe, some basslines, bartolinis, something like that, but I don't know if it is possible or worth it to go from a passive system to an active system...cuz I'd want an active system, maybe even an 18 volt system. I'd want a 3 band eq and there are only 3 knob holes, too wouldn't I need at least 5?...how can this be done? I REALLY don't want to drill holes in my baby....

    Thanx

    Sounds like a good opportunity to use concentric
    (stacked) pots...
