Old news. Meh, if I wanted an active pickup sound I'd get an EMG81, if it's been used for ages amongst metal guitarists it's for a reason. But I hate actives.

If i wanted an active pickup, i would think "why the fuck would i buy a guitar so shitty that it needs an active?" ditch the guitar, slap myself, and get a good guitar with a good passive.

i'd like to know how it plays, it sounds fun... but everytime they say "active" in the description, it puts me off of it.
