Hello again.
Is it normal for the battery in these guitars to drain when the jack is left plugged into the guitar and amp but with the amp off? Mine does and I assumed the battery would not drain so long as the amp was off.
Thanks!

Yes... If you if you leave you guitar plugged-in it will drain the battery.

That is true of almost all "active" pickups.

I am not sure what YEAR your guitar is, so I don't know which preamp you have.

And you DO NOT need to start a new thread for every question about the same guitar.

I am upgrading you to an OFC member so that you can post ALL of your Questions about Your guitar on the SAME thread.
You should post in "General Posting" or "About my Guitar".

Welcome.

Thanks for the welcome, reply and the upgrade.
Will post in the same thread when about the same guitar.
The year is 2018 I believe. Both the steel and nylon versions are 2018; the updated models.
Not sure if the preamp version changes things since the pickups are active.
