hello all, i've got a black Ibanez bass that i got from a secondhand shop in Japan...it says "Roadstar II" on the headstock...has anyone heard of this bass? I'm wondering, because i have noticed that the battery life on this thing is pretty short, from what i gather is normal (usually at least a month or two....mine lasted about three weeks, and only played about two hours a day...) However, there is a little laminated sticker on the battery cover, but its a bunch of japanese (i know some, but not fluent in it) and so i'm wondering if it's just this bass in particular that is eating my batteries, or if it is something these basses are known for. please help!! I'd like to use it (b/c i stopped using it after about a year of wasting money on 9v's) again, and i'm thinking of maybe putting in another active setup, or at least a passive one, but i'd like to know if there's something i can do to fix it, b/c i'd hate to have extra holes in the body... any info is helpful! even like who i should talk to, what to look at (b/c i know nothing bout electronics), etc. thanks!
