    Hi all, i have a status energy six string and was thinking about replacing the treble cut/boost for a two band eq, such as the seymour duncan. stc2p
    My (retarded) question is this... are the pickups active so i can use my stc-2p preamp i have kicking around still boxed, or are they active so ill need to buy a new stc-2a instead????
    Any help would be great!
    Thanks in advance
    Gaf

    To the best of my knowledge Status have never made active pickups. They've all been passive with an onboard pre.
    Best bet is to email Rob though.

    FWIW:

    Interesting, I don't recall anybody having a seperate active and passive preamp before. Makes me wonder if it's just a trim pot they throw in or what the deal is cause I'm not aware of anybody else having seperate pre's and I've ran Barts, EMGs, and Aggies with passive and active pups with no incompatibility issues, off course Barts have the trim pot but I never needed to use it.

    I just skimmed their site and I didn't any seperate designation for stc active/passive.
