    Low Battery warning? Is there any?

    ... How do you know when the battery is on the way out on a Luke 3?

    ... Which might be ok if you only use it in the bedroom but not great if it lets you down on stage with no warning. A battery status light wolud seem to be appropriate

    get a couple of rechargeable 9v batteries and just put freshly charged one in before the gig.

    Batteries are cheap enough - as a rule I replace mine twice a year and don't worry about it.

    One thing to keep in mind is the battery is only being used when a guitar cable is plugged into the guitar. For all kinds of reasons (battery life included), its a great idea to unplug the guitar when you are not playing it

    I use a CHEAP battery tester and check periodically.

    Six months between replacing good batteries should be plenty of time.
