To achieve correct placement, first wrap your battery (not included) in electrical tape (not included) to prevent contact with the metal of the controls or the switch. Your loaded guard has been wired to optimize this placement. 2 We wire the jack for you.Youll need to unsolder the prewired connections in order to thread the wires through your channel. We purposefully wire these in advance so you can see exactly how these need to be connected. Before you unsolder these jack connections on your new prewired pickguard, take a picture and keep notes so that you can resolder correctly after pushing the wires through your channel. Take your time for installation; do not use power tools and do not over-tighten screws or other components.
Your battery will operate all your active electronics. A low battery will make your guitar sound weak and distorted. We recommend changing your battery every few string changes, according to your playing needs and preferences. Please keep records regarding installation for future battery changes.Remember to unplug your guitar when not in use; doing so will help your battery last longer.
