What's the difference? can someone tell me which is better and which one will work on the ibanez'z in my sig?

Ibanez GSA 60
Ibanez RG4EX1QM
Metal Muff
Jackson DKMGT
GK Backline 210
Vox VT50
Crate XT15R
Ibanez SR400QM
Ibanez GSR 200 bass
Crate B15 bass amp
Lots of Monster cords
Active = Takes batteries. EMG's are the most popular. Great for pinch harmonics, but lack in cleans and bass.

Passive = Create an electric current on their own when the strings vibrate. Better for cleans and bass.

-Jim Morrison
Actives have a boosted signal from the batteries.

This boosted signal is often make it easy to get higher gain.

Some say that some actives lack responsiveness since they are boosted so much.

It's all preference .

^I'd let a pro look at it. Once you get into the technicalities of screws...well, it's just a place you don't want to be, friend.
In your case, go passive. There's less stuff to replace (EMG require new pots) and Dimarzio should have good detailed wiring diagrams for an Ibanez-type guitar (they have a good business relationship).
