I have a Deluxe J Bass by Fender that has on-board Active EQ (Mid-Range, Treble, Bass, and Pickup selector knobs as well as a volume knob). Fender Vintage Noiseless Pickups. I occasionally have to change the 9v battery in the bass, which I need for sound.

What I am wondering... Is there any way to 'bypass' these electronics? I don't really prefer the onboard EQ as much as I originally did. I usually have them leveled out and set my tone from my SVT Pro-4. I don't want to worry about needing a fresh battery either. I have had to make a few last minute runs on the way to gigs.

Thanks for any help!
