active pickups don't take a battery. passive ones do. 9V battery in the guitar. i think. but it might be the other way around

lol

active pickups DO take a 9v battery. passive do not. active pickups are much hotter and sound best with a ****load of gain and through a tube amp

On actives, you do not have to ground the guitar with your body to eliminate the noises.

Active pickups have a pre-amp built in and are usually have quite a bit more output then regular passive pickups. For some decent soundclips of EMG's, go to www.emginc.com

I am also thinking about getting the Schecter C-1 guitar( the white one), What do you think about this guitar? and how much would it be worth Canadian?

the c-1 would probably be worth it.... (whatever type of music you play) its a great guitar. i have no clue how much it would be canadian, as im an ignorant american peice of trash.... but its only about 600 or 700 american....

OK, Active pickups:

They actually have WEAKER magnets than passive pickups. This means the
magnets won't effect the string vibrating as much as passives. This weaker
signal is then boosted using the 9V battery before leaving the guitar.

One thing you have to watch out for is not leaving your guitar plugged in! I
just did on one of my Alembics and it killed the battery. When I opened up
the compartments I found FOUR 9V batteries in one compartment and one in
another! I thought I needed to change all 5. After buying a ton of batteries I
discovered only one of them was used for active pickups. doh!

I Can't find the soundclips?

Yeah I was talking about the regular one, my budget is no more then 600$. Are there any other C-1 models that are around the same price that are decent? or other schecters in this case?

the C-1 She Devil is probably the best C-1 you can find under 600, you can see it here http://www.drumcityguitarland.com/inventory/Details.cfm?ProductTypeID=12&BrandID=38
