The new guitar I am getting has active EMG's. The battery has 1420 hours of use. What happens when the battery dies? Do I just buy new batteries? Do I need new pickups?

Carvin Cobalt-350
LTD Alexi-600

yeah, my uncles went out. theyll tell u to buy dry ones or something, regular work just as fine... it wont mess upthe pickups, dont wrry.
That would suck if you had to buy new pickups every time the batter dies...

Nah you just have to put in new 9v's.

To get to the battery, you either unscrew a plate on the back, or it might have something like the cover on the back of a TV remote, depending on the guitar.
You can call me Aaron.

Out on parole, any more instances of plum text and I get put back in...
