if it's a stock model, passive. only reason a floral jem would have actives is if it's been owner modified.

come to think of it, i don't think there has ever been a vai signature model with actives.

Someone needs to be taken out back for some "wall-to-wall" counseling on that one!

that first FP actually wasn't too bad, the gaping hole in the single coil made it ugly imo

the second one is just horrible
