i know a couple of you have run across these and liked them. I finally decided to get the emg pj setup. what i thought was in this bass was passive emg designed pickups and an active circuit. Is this right? By putting active pickups in this bass i will have an actice circuit with actice pickups. Im thinkin this will be 2 batteries, 3 if i run it at 18 volts. Or do i even want to run it at 18 volts. Let me know if anyone knows anything about this.
