    hi all. firstly, apologies if this has been covered...i tried searching pretty diligently, to no avail, but if i missed something, my bad.

    i just ordered my first bass, an sx sjb62 (should be here within the week - stoked!), and i'd like to swap out the pickups for actives at some point in the not-too-distant future. however, i'm unclear on whether or not there's a place to put a 9-volt battery in the sx's body, based on some comments i've seen in posts around the site. has anyone successfully installed active pickups in an sx jazz? or at least, has one and knows that this is possible (or not)?

    thanks in advance.
