    i saw your post in 81/85
    here are 2 reasons why you shouldnt buy it
    -i am gonna buy it
    -and i am gonna buy it
    jokes apart if you do
    and your guitar isnt loaded with an active pup i.e no battery chamber
    either forget it or take it to a luither route a cavity for the batteries drill holes in it solder all the thingz refinish it bla bla bla its a pain in the ass

    There is absolutely no need to drill holes or route a separate cavity on the guitar.......There is enough room to fit two 9v Batteries inside the regular electronics cavity........I have just wrapped my battery in foam paper and placed it next to my Tone pot......
    Expensive guitars come with a separate battery cavity so everything is in a organized way....That's the only difference......99% of the people who buy Active Pickups place their batteries in the regular electronics cavity unless their guitar already has a battery cavity.....
