If you purchased your guitar pre June 22 2022 your guitar is fitted with 2x CR2032 coin cell batteries, please watch the video below for instructions on how to replace them.
If you purchased your guitar after June 22 2022. New laws were passed in Australia around the use of coin cell batteries. We chose to move away from coin cell batteries to ensure we met the new safety requirements.
Please look inside your guitar towards the neck block. On the left hand side if you see;
- a small black battery box your guitar is fitted with a battery pack that holds 4 AAA batteries.
- If you see a black soft case your guitar is fitted with a 9V battery.
You will need to loosen your strings to access the battery pack.
What guitar strings do Fenech Guitars use? Does the gauge matter, or should I use whatever feels best to me?
Strings are extremely important – All our Fenech models are fitted with D’Addario XS Phosphor Bronze coated strings.
- Our Auditorium, Grand Auditorium, D78, D75 & Jumbo are fitted with 12-53 Light, Coated Acoustic Guitar Strings (XSAPB1253)
- Our Stage Auditorium is fitted with 13-56 Medium, Coated Acoustic Guitar Strings (XSAPB1356)
While it’s OK to experiment with different types/brands of strings, to maintain factory performance and specifications we recommend staying with the correct string gauges as above.
