standard p-bass or active p-bass?

im probably gonna put basslines quarter pound pickups on the standard and the active and a basslines jazz pickup on it too. i dont play slap or anything, mainly pick, but fingers sometimes too. would the active still have a lot of tones even when played through an amp with no eq except for gain and tone?
