Assuming it works!

Unsure how the neck pickup would be situated where it is. Would it not be less effective!?

Also, fernandes v sustainiac...

Fernandes is great if all you want is infinite sustain, but if you want that and also a great sounding neck pickup, sustainiac is the best. Also the battery life on the sustainiac is massive compared to the fernandes.

Question Modded MBC-1 Problem. Battery Drain from Sustainiac

Hey guys!
I'm havin a problem and maybe someone can help out.
I modded my Cort MBC-1. Installed a sustainiac and a fuzz factory.
It's all working great except the sustainiac battery is always draining even with the guitar unplugged!
I have both ground cables - from the FF and sustainiac - soldered to the same sleeve on the output stereo jack.
If I disconnect the ground from the FF the sustainiac turns off with the guitar unplugged, as it should.
But the FF doesn't work...
Do you know how I solve this? Do I have to ground the FF somewhere else?
Can someone post a pic of the wiring in their cavity and the output jack please?
Thanks a lot!!
Cheers!

You need to wire both the batteries to the sleeve of the output jack. The way you have it wired it's grounding through the Fuzz so it's always on.

Tusq nut

Hi!

Does anyone know which Tusq nut model that fit the MBC-1 the best as is? I want to replace my nut since I've used heavier gauge strings and want to go back to a regular set.

Could this also be a solution for an acoustic guitar that seems to eat 9v's for breakfast?

Hi.
Last info I got about this is this.
If you have two batteries for two different systems inside the guitar like a pre-amp or a fuzz or a sustainer you need a 9-pin output jack to isolate both batteries.
With one system the stereo output jack and the battery black cable connected to its second sleeve provides a short with the guitar unplugged that takes the battery off the system and doesn't drain it.
With two batteries from what I was told I have to isolate both of them using this type of jack.
Check stewmac if that's your case. They sell them. I ordered mine already.

Anyone else has some other insight about this?

Cheers

I think you're overcomplicating it. Connect both of the black battery wires to the ring of the jack and nothing else. Connect all the grounds to the ground of the stereo jack. That's literally all you need to do.

I don't know...
I'm not doing the installation. My luthier it and he is not inexperienced tough it's the first guitar with two internal systems he is working on.
I'm not sure he did what you suggest but i'm almost certain unless there's double grounding of the sustainiac somewhere.
He did have both black wires from the batteries connected to the ring of the stereo output jack and one to the ground which I suppose it's the main ground from one of the pots. The sustainiac came pre-installed so all the grounds where soldered where they are supposed to.
And still the sustainiac didn't turn off with the guitar unplugged unless he disconected the black wire of the FF battery from the output jack.
Do you have a guitar with both the FF and the sustainiac installed internally? Could you share some pictures of the wiring perhaps and the output jack? That would be awesome if you could!

I've never seen it done that way. Seems unnecessary.

This, but I'm likely to agree with you anyway, as I know you know more than I do, even though we both know nothing.

Does a sustainer have the same problem with a built in fuzz factory that it has with the pedal? I have to put a buffer in between the guitar and fuzz for both to work together so I’m guessing the same thing happens when they’re both connected inside the guitar.

Thanks, I'll have a look when I get a hold of my student's guitar!
