Real Guitars Are For Pussies 2

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is a quick fun circuit bend I built today with a cheap kids toy guitar from a charity shop, added features as follows.

Super pitch bend knob and touch bolts.
LFO pitch modulation with speed, depth controls and LED indicator.
Headstock light sensor.
Audio out jack socket.

 Loads of riffs, loops, tones, screeching noise and squelchy bleeps.

A did a video a few years ago entitled Real Guitars Are For Pussies which got quite a few abusive comments from prima donna guitarists who didn’t quite get the irony of the title, so I thought I revisit that theme to see if they’ve since gained a sense of humour 🙂
