Panel Descriptions


Tremolo Cover

This is the cover of the tremolo unit.

Battery Cover

Install batteries here.
Battery Type: Four AA
Life: Up to 9 hours with high powered rechargeable Ni-MH batteries (2600 mAH – 2700

mAH). Life may be less with regular alkaline batteries. We recommend getting 8 high quality

rechargeable batteries, so you can always have one set charging while the other set is in the

guitar. When the batteries run low, the blue power indicator will begin to flash as a warning

and will eventually go out.
When the batteries are dead or even removed from the instrument, the guitar still functions as a Stratocaster®,

so you will never have a “gig emergency”.

When turning the unit upside down, take care to prevent damage to the buttons, knobs, etc. Also, be sure to

handle the unit with care so as to avoid dropping it, or allowing it to fall or tip over.
