Just one question...what happens if the batery in the active pickup goes dead? does it stop working, does the sound change a lot, is it just quieter? fill me in.

All of the above. I usually change my battery when the sound just doesn't sound as full anymore. It is a difference you'll notice.
Guitars are like my babies... except without that useless baby meat...

without the battery powered preamp they won't work too well. That is, except for Epiactives.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Generally as the battery starts to run low the tone degrades and gets quieter and when it actually runs out you don't hear anything.
