    Nice, but I think the idea was to have to be part of the guitar.

    Well, you could always stick this in the guitar, but it is always on.

    See that sort of thing works. Thinking outside the box.

    Iīm not so sure. Itīs quite common on acoustic guitars. Like the Baggs Anthem. You just press a small button and it shows how much batttery life there is left.
    I do also think it would be a great idea to have. Specially on the Luke 3 that I have myself which doesnīt work if the battery is dead. It doesnīt run in passive mode. As I do a fair bit of live gigs I canīt change the battery that often.

    the LR Baggs system is a modular unit with a circuit board. The Luke III electronics are pretty much hand built. Where would they put the button to push and the LED that would not overly complicate construction?

    I also honestly find low battery lights to be deceiving, as all they show is if it passes a certain threshold, so you really have no idea how much is left in the battery. If you really want to know, pull the battery and see what the voltage reads with a multi meter.

    It was just a reply to it not being possible without it being powered all the time.
    Ernie ball is a clever company. I’m sure they could figure something out.

    Well, obviously. Since their guitars don’t have it.
    I just replied that it can be done. Like on the baggs anthem.
