Please there are so many good noiseless pickups now its an embarrassment of riches. Dimarzio Area's, Bill Lawrence L200's, Kinman, Fender N4, Mojotone quiet coil, Zexcoil and Fluence to name just some. The Fluence are among the most authentic sounding because they dont use a dummy coil at all. They provide 2 switchable tones: a traditional 50's glassy tone and an overwound 60's tone.

If the fluence were passive I'd already own them. But being a fuzz guy, active pickups kinda ruin the Guitar volume > fuzz interaction.

My next set will be Zexcoils which are as good as the Fluence but passive.
