These Battery Box are not cheap, but are good

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.

Bass hot-rod with EMG's

We will always use the battery boxes, the design is excellent! Well worth the extra cost. Fender with EMG's running on 18V- sick!

Battery box needed

Used this box and will never use another style - very nice design and worth the extra cost.

A place for a battery

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.

No Problems Here

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.

Battery box item #3577... not for all 9V batteries

Bought one and installed it in a JamesTrussart. Good product but be aware it will not accept newer lithium 9V batteries with sharper/square angles (such as VARTA brand). Works fine with standard alkaline 9V batteries.

I bought this Batbox for my Kramer Strat copy ... Only to discover that it was too deep. It seemed to be of good quality, but was ridiculously pricy for a bit of plastic to put a battery into. I simply don't understand how you can install this into a guitar.
