    Strat with Preamp Circuit?

    Anyone here build up a Strat with the Clapton type boost preamp circuit.
    I have no experience with strats with preamps.
    Was wondering if the pickups can be played in passive mode or if the preamp would be active all the time?
    Thinking of messing with one.
    Feel free to discuss that guitar, and any other Strat 3 Single Coil gain setup?
    I've built up tons of regular strat pickup guitars, but want to experiment with something else.
    Here's a clapton model for reference.
    Thanks in advance.

    I installed EC Booster once and it had an ON/OFF switch. But the first transistor in the circuit was always active so you could call it "half-active" .
    Here is the switch.

    I may have some more photos covering the installation process (if you need).
