    Might be a current and voltage regulation issue as well.
    Thanks again for the info TBone, greatly appreciated.

    Thank you as well Devnor, the forum is educating =)

    I also have this problem with my brand new Majesty Artisan 7.. Guitar is kept unplugged in HSC when not used. Fresh name brand batteries only last a couple weeks even if I don't play the guitar much during that time period.

    If you still have an issue Iíd check the wiring of the battery pack. I had an issue with my JP15 and it turned out one wire was soldered to the wrong place, bypassing a resistor. It was easy to fix. They should be able to provide you the wiring diagram. Iím guessing itís almost identical to the JP15

    Hi the orange light when pulling out the cable shows that the battery is empty? Or does it have to flash? Cause I always get an orange light when unplugging the guitar

    In my experience the high battery usage is a sign that some time soon the electronics will die completely. Majesty guitars have a huge failure rate electronics wise. Good news is that once you pull out all the stock electronics and rewire them as normal passive guitars they sound way better - way more character and soul (and treble).

    "Majesty guitars have a huge failure rate electronics wise" - this is based on, you know, real data? Or just something you're saying?
