well the sun is my fav planet so there's no telling what mischief it's up to.
Yeah, I like the 81! Sue me! It cuts like a hot butter and crunches like taco bell.
I also got a lithium 9 V battery for this so I have to take the pickguard off as little as possible. An alkaline is supposed to last 1500 hours for a single 81, but that's not counting the degradation due to finite shelf life. Even if you don't play the guitar the battery will die in less than five years and will probably leak all over the place. The lithium has a shelf life of 10 years, doesn't leak, and has higher energy density to boot.
