    Hi Everyone,

    I just picked up a beautiful, Fender Victor Bailey acoustic. The battery had leaked a tiny bit during shipping, but I was able to clean it up and all seemed okay. One problem I am having: the battery is not held very firmly against the contacts and I need to move the whole preamp around in its cradle to maintain a connection to the battery when its turned on. Again, once the battery connects, all seems fine, but if I move the bass around too much the connection is lost and the preamp/tuner cuts out. Any thoughts?
