Direct replacement for my Seagull thin line acoustic

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Here's a tip-- The battery box comes with lead wires attached, and I recommend you use them. I tried to de-solder the leads and then solder on the existing wires in my guitar and the heat melted the plastic that was holding the copper contacts in place, ruining the battery box. I ordered another battery box, spiced the leads to the guitar wires, and it works perfectly. (Special thanks to StewMac for picking up the shipping on the second battery box. You rock!)

4 screws better then 2

By

I bought one of these before, did some modification to it but this is my 2nd battery box and compared to others, without slandering companies, this one was/is much more better. Like that title states, 4 screws are better then 2. Thus meaning holding the battery box in place. My only suggestion to this would be a variant without the +/- metal conductor plates, I prefer a dedicated clip on the 9 volt battery to my EMG pickups and other active preamps. Sometime the metal conductors might hum/buzz upon much usage

This one is on par...

I've used this battery box on many occasions to fix broken ones that have come into my shop. In every guitar that I've ever owned that had this type of battery box, the battery box has gone bad. That is why I only build these into an instrument when the customer insists on it. This battery box is as good as the rest of them that are out there...

Awful

By

3576 2x9V compartment: The terminals don't make very solid/reliable contact with the batteries, resulting in extremely loud static and pops if you so much as breathe on the closed battery compartment. Now I'm looking for something better that will also fit the hole I routed for this thing.

A place for a battery

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Face it. A battery in a bag, stuck to the inside of an acoustic guitar is marginal at best. The velcro disc that the bag is stuck to will come unstuck eventually, and then the battery is an unsecured weight that WILL break output wiring. And soldering those #28 or #30 wires back to the output jack is a pain. Assuming you get them on the right terminals, there are four, you do the math.

Worked like a charm. Easy to install and, in my opinion, looks great.

Good fit for Stingray

Just FYI--#3577 is a damn-near perfect replacement for a MM Stingray. No mods needed.

probably the best battery box on the market

No clip to break, like they all eventually do. Just slide the battery in and close it! Nice long leads too.
