Bryan, actually, the only difference between Line In and Mic In is the input impedence. There is, of course, minimal DC current on both of these, but none that travels "out" into your input device with any significance (such as powering your pick-ups - which is obsurd). You're more likely to blow your computer from the 10,000 volts you get scuffing across the carpet in your socks.
My experience has been more "hum" on the recording using the Line In rather than the Mic In, as I've said - I use this method all the time and it works very well. I'm an electronic technician and a qualified studio engineer...but I could be wrong.
