This Guitar Hero Uses a Real Guitar

 |  |  |  |  |  |  June 11, 2009

This isn’t about being amazing at Guitar Hero; lots of people are amazing Guitar Hero players. No, this little patch of the internet is dedicated to being amazing at doing the obvious (and I mean that in a good way). It’s Guitar Hero… with a guitar.

The genius of this particular mod (beyond the fact that it’s a guitar) lies in the way the guitar is utilized. Not only does the conversion not affect (much) the guitar’s primary use–you can still play it–but when used as a controller, it operates in much the same way as the actual controller. Press the frets on one, press the frets on the other.

There are plans to expand the project further, as though this isn’t cool enough.
