Welcome aboard Jeff.  If the pickups in your LP are stock, there will be an extra box/cavity routed in the body with a cover the size of a 9V battery if they’re active.  If they are not the original pickups, just remove the covers on the back.  If you don’t see a 9V battery (or in some cases, 2 batteries), they’re passive.

So next question.  If I plug my passive guitar into a distortion pedal that has a battery and volume control, do I then plug that pedal into the active or passive jack on my amp?


Just straight into the input jack.  Doesn't matter if the guitar is active or passive.

Best wishes!
