System Alvarez 500A electronics


  1. I’m having a problem with the WY-1-BK. The System Alvarez 500A electronics (I believe that’s what it’s called). drains the 9volt battery in just a few hours. I think it malfunctioning and I can’t find a replacement. It is used regularly. Can you help?

    1. I own the same guitar I had problems with the electronics as well I ended up putting a Fishman Prefix system in and it sounds amazing as far as battery drainage I had to unplug the jack at the guitar when I took a break because the battery is draining as long as you are plugged in I hope that you work out the kinks I’ve had mine since 1998
