Nope.
You could use the headphone out for silent recordings though, but I wouldn't recommend it, as it really sounds like total crap.
The pre-amp out or FX send (there are 2 separate outputs) need to have volume in order to produce any signal as well, as the MV is placed before the FX loop.
Things with strings:
Ibanez J.Custom, Prestiges, RG8, SR5 bass etc
LP's, Strat, Tele
Noiseboxes:
ENGL Retro Tube 50
5150 III 50W
Orange Terror Bass
