Long time lurker, first time poster. So I've had my Fender P bass special deluxe for about a year now and I'm really thinking about changing out the pickups. After a lot of tone researching, my first choice is the EMG Geezer p/j set, second choice is somewhere with Seymour Duncan qp. With the geezers being my first choice, I'm concerned with the install itself. My bass has an active/passive switch. Does this affect anything with the new pups? Will I still be able to use both modes? Currently, in active mode, I have volume control, pickup pan, and high/mid/low control. In passive, (unfortunately) only volume and pup pan work. How would all this play with the geezer set? With those questions out of the way, is it even worth it to try and run Geezer pickups in an active setup? I know that really goes against the grain as far as his style. Something else I'd be interested in trying would be upgrading the preamp to something where I could have full tone control like on a regular passive p bass. Idk if that's even possible. I'm a long time player, but this is the first time I've ever really wanted to venture out to something like this. So I'll be the first to tell you, I know nothing.
