I just got my LTD Viper 400 recently (it comes with an 81/85 pair of EMGs) and I've been told not to leave your guitar plugged in to your amp when not using it...

I have some questions...

1. Does this mean if I leave the amp turned off with my guitar plugged into it, will it still use the EMG's batteries?

2. If I leave the guitar unplugged to the amp, but still leave the cord inside of it, will it run up the batteries?

Yes. The switch is in the jack socket so whenever the chord is plugged in the battery is being used.

Why would it do that
Theres still no electric current circulating inside your guitar so I dont understand why the batteries would drain...

Allright.

Its not a good idea to leave it plugged in anyway, you could hit the end of your cord or something and mess up your input jack.

But I think it does run down the batteries. I'm not shure.


yep, and unplug it as it runs down you batteries

but seriously didnt 'shure' look wrong?? its 'sure' its actually faster to type

1. Yes.
2. I don't know, you can try if you feel like draining a 9V?

Yes, the batteries will drain. Its just like wah pedals, and other boss pedals that aren't true bypass.
