passive XB 125
« on: January 29, 2004, 05:58:54 PM »
I suppose I have the only passive XB 125 in existence then!!  There is no place for the 9 volt to go.  Anyone have a clue here??

If your bass plays without the battery it's a passive instrument. I've never had an active bass but I hear that on some of them the rear cover has to be unscrewed each time you change the battery. That's why I'm buying a T24 at the end of the month.
no frets?

Oh, and I forgot to mention that the Taurus is listed as an active bass and I've heard that some of them were at first, but now they are passive basses. I emailed Washburn and they told me that the Taurus is passive even though the catalog lists them as active. The same may be true with your bass. Email the company and they will answer you in a day or two.
