Hello all,

I am considering purchasing this guitar:

http://www.zzounds.com/item--ESPEIIECDB?siid=131898

However, as you can see, on the back of this guitar there is no typical dedicated battery compartment.

I'm assuming the battery must be in the electronics compartment where the pots are, but can someone who has this guitar, or a similar one, confirm this? Some pictures would be great.

I'm worried that if it's in there, then it must have one of those small, thin battery connectors which are usually a huge pain to get the battery off of. I'm concerned that if that is the case, when I am pulling the battery off I might rip the wire off by accident as well. Can someone please advise? Thanks.

As opposed to what other style of 9 volt connector?

But yea, pretty sure that battery is near the pots.

I have a 2010 Eclipse and I have replaced the battery once since I purchased the guitar in February that year. To be fair, I have other guitars that I play more, but that battery connector should be fine for a lifetime. And should it break, it's probably one the easiest part of the guitar to fix...

You worry about the wrong things.

A huge pain to get the battery connector off? Do you have the delicate fingers of a 4 year old girl?

I agree with everybody here, that it's not a big deal, and op is worried about nothing. Still though, if given the option, I prefer a different place and connection style for the battery. Both of my Hellraisers have the little box for the battery, which doesn't require removing screws to get to, and the actual connection is just the little metal contacts that the battery is held against, rather than the piece you have to pry off of the battery itself, with the wire hanging out.

Haha, wow. Every time I post on this forum, I'm reminded of how toxic some of the people on here are.

Thank you to the people who offered constructive comments.

Funny enough, i have never gotten a "toxic" response to any question i ever posed on here. Must be you.

But yes, the battery connector will not be any more fragile than in all the other battery powered guitars.
