Actually, you dont have to make a cavity if you have enough room for a 9v battery in the back by your pots. thats where i have my battery, just put some foam (packaged with the pickup) around the battery, stick it in there, and screw on the plate. So you dont need to make a cavity.

...and you're saying to take it for granted that you'd just have to live with...

the battery is on when the guitar is plugged in. they have 2000 hours of battery life, which is about 2 years. Its got more info about that on the site.

wow, thats a fair while. Do they go flat gradually? or is it a on/off thing.

the site says that there will be a slight distortion when pickup battery is low. Plus a slight loss of output. It will get gradually weaker and weaker. it doesnt just crap out.
