When two of the world’s greatest instruments meet, it makes an awesome creation. “NES Guitar” is a combination of two extreme worlds, one is gaming and the other is music. The NES Guitar is made from classic Nintendo Systems and there is a collection of them available on the site getlofi, where you can also buy (if not sold already) or order them.
An NES Guitar is a beautiful custom built electric guitar and is fully functional. Only one switch/knob proves the simplicity it holds and controls the clean vs distorted sounds. Original buttons of Nintendo turn on/off the fuzz circuit, pitches volume and tone.
Whole procedure to build the guitar is not enclosed but the elements used are wholly detailed. Foremost elements used are: a reused NES Case, reused typical guitar neck, Maple or Rosewood body within, a hard-tail bridge, output Jack and volume knob, buttons from the controller itself, adjustable height pickup. All the elements are placed very delicately, in a form to build beautiful custom guitars. Price of the guitar varies from $180 for humbucker model and $155 for a single-coil model.
