Default Who makes a pit case for saddle packs?

Since i'm running the xray T1 exclusively (too poor for two cars at the moment ), I'd like some way to protect my fuk packs since saddles aren't as common. Any ideas?

Now that's not a bad question, yup who doesn't like half inch length 12AWG wire for a jumper wire

Yah I have my moments, kinda like when i made the ford joke a while back. Anyway, I don't use 12awg for a jumper, i just make a stick pack and bend it in the middle.





Here's my gibson V just for sh*ts and giggles. (Gibson USA Flying V, gothic edition w/EMG 81 in the bridge position)

That's better than any wire, I've seen that also but I don't have time to readjust the differance in levelness of the pack from it getting bent out of levelness taking it in and out of the car not to mention transportation and storage. In other words the pack might not fit correct in the chassis if the bar gets bent out of whack but can be avoided. I'm thinking I can make one out of wood for mine.

i was thinking any battery holder that holds 6 cell would work if you used the jumper wire instead of the bent battery bar. as i could tell now, i dont think anyone makes those kind of boxed for batteries, guess you have to make on yourself!

AWOLsoldier just use a pice of 12 gage exactly the same way as you do your curent pact, then you can have iather a stick pack or a saddle pack..

when i ran an x-ray it is what i did . ( just dont over do it on the solder so the wire is still flexable )

Well the epiphones are budget gibsons if i'm not mistaken... though they have their own exclusive models. Ovations are really nice and I have a Carvin DC127 that i'm about to sell since the Gibson sounds and feels so much better.
