another thing I have noticed is that active pups tend to sound the same no matter what wood and guitar they are in I think, as passives change greatly depending on the wood making them all have a individual sound.
Active pickups basically have a booster inside the guitar, like an input booster that boosts certain frequencies. I'd much rather go with passive and use my own input boosters on my chain. This gives me the option to turn them off, the option to choose what I want to boost, and I prefer a Tube Screamer or treble boost anyday
