i have stock single coil strat pickups. are they active or passive? and what does this mean? i want to put a duncan invader on the bridge. is that active or passive? can i put a pasive pick up into a guitar that had actives or do i need to change something? sorry for all the questions but im a bit confused. also, i want to get into fixing/cusomizing my guitar myself instead of a shop. is there a site i can go to that teaches the basics on the parts/functions/how tos?

stock strat pups are passive, meaning they dont run on batteries(actives run on 9 volts).

duncan invaders are passive.

if you're putting passive pickups in an active guitar you'll need to swap out the pots and jack.

thanks
do you know of any site that teaches the basics on guitar building, customizing, and functions of the parts?
