Don't see why not, it's just a different layout of the same controls

Ok. That's good to know. I'm almost tempted to try the VVT configuration with the EMGs on the Flea bass. Simpler, maybe?

are they active or passive EMG in Betsy? 

Active. They have a 9v battery hidden under the control plate. They sound great. So, I could swap the EMGs from Betsy to the Flea...

From Bass Collection - http://www.basscentre.com/british-bass-masters/bbm-betsy.html 

Like its namesake, the new Betsy is loaded with EMG's superb, low-impedance J pickups. Guy's original got an active upgrade during early rehearsals with Pink Floyd in August '87. "I said to my tech, Syd Price, one day, ‘These pickups are a bit quiet, maybe we should think about getting some new ones?’ - and the next morning, it had EMGs in it. I shouted ‘What the f*ck have you done? You can’t put EMGs in a ’64 Jazz!’ but when I plugged it in, it sounded amazing!"
