Active vs Passive Guitars - Guitar Question

A JamPlay Member Asks...

"Ellen asks, "Hi, what do I need to know about active and passive guitars? What makes one active and another passive? I have been shopping for a CD player and amp that I can run my guitar through at the same time. How can I tell if my guitar is active or passive?""
