Love this guitar and look forward to buying better Ovations later, BUT I cannot figure out where the battery is for the electric saddle pickup. I cannot find a battery holder in the body.

Thanks

Depending on how old your Applause is... It might not need a battery.
If you've just got a volume and tone knobs, or two sliders...
And you don't see a battery holder, or a 9v connector inside, it might be a "passive" system.
Have you plugged it in?

I did and nothing happened, so it may just not work. Thanks for keeping me from searching for something that doesn't exist. I will still enjoy a very good acoustic guitar.

Good to know.

You are now free to post in other sections, should you choose.

Welcome Buddy.

Also... Another member sez....

Chris in Yakima. Tell that guy to shoot some electronic contact cleaner into his volume & tone sliders on his passive preamp. Those pots are notorious for collecting dust & fuzz to interfere with proper functioning. If that doesn't help, he can replace the sliders with new ones, though that will take some research & acquisition. Since it is a passive system, he doesn't have to mess with a lot of integrated circuits, and there is certainly no battery to mess with.

So.... You can do that.
