Thinking about one last mod to my 94 LB70. It is an active bass and does not have the bypass switch that the later models have. Looking for some specifics/ recommendations from anyone here who has done a conversion like the one I have in mind. I realize it will probably mean different pups, which I'd rather not have to replace, but will the current Kiessels be a good choice? I know the EQ circuit will have to be changed as the current is a boost/cut on the bass and treble so hoping someone has some ideas. Thanks for any help,

This is much easier than going the other way. The stock pickups should be fine as the were usually able to be used in passive mode anyway. How many pots are currently on the bass (how many holes are already drilled)? This will determine what configuration you want.... 2 vol 2 tone... 2 vol, 1 tone, 1 blend, etc.

This place is a good place to get parts and they have wiring diagrams for different scenarios on their site.

Thanks for the link. Bass has 1 volume, 1 blend, 1 bass boost/cut and 1 treble boost/cut. I wasn't sure if the boost/cut pots could be replaced with a straight non active bass and treble pots and just not wire in the battery power.
