Not even close! People say LOTS of stuff, but this is just not true...

(Sustainer+pickup in one single coil space)... 

Mine is the previous version with a single coil driver next to a single 
coil pu in a humbucking size hole. Some people put both on a single 
humbucker mounting plate, but I set mine up as 2 single coils so I could 
individually optimize their adjustmtents.

Battery life: I've been using mine since around July 15th and have gone 
through 2 batteries... this has been with erratic semi-regular use. 
Possibly 1-2 hours 2 times a week. I'd say I get WELL over 3-5 hours per 
battery. I'll know more after longer term usage. (I don't have it turned 
on all the time I'm playing either...)

This system SMOKES the ebow... I also use it more due to it's built-in

I wasn't talking about the sound quality... But mine's pretty good... it 
IS digital y'know... Listen for yourself!
