Q: I’m interested in the Fender American Deluxe Strat Plus with Personality Cards for the different wiring configurations you can get, and the different tones. Is it active? Does it require a battery?
A: No, the Fender American Deluxe Strat Plus with Personality Cards does not require a battery. The system is completely passive. Just swap in a new card, and the controls/pickups are rewired into a new configuration. It really is a cool way to get all of those sounds quickly and easily in one guitar, with no soldering or rewiring required!
