The Nintendar!

Unread postAuthor: sgort87 » Sat Jul 22, 2006 12:50 am

I forgot to post this here. It's been on Spudtech for almost a week.

So my buddy Andrew comes to me for some help a couple weeks ago saying that he decided upon the mission of making a guitar from an original Nintendo. (broken) Me, being the one to take any challenge - whether I know I'll fail or not - took this on with great delight.

He had a guitar from a pawn shop and got a broken NES from Disc Replay. I spent about 5 hours in the guitar repair shop manipulating the NES to fit all the parts.

The hard part was the neck but I somehow got it perfect. And when I say perfect, I mean it. Keep in mind I have high standards, being a person who sets up guitars on a daily basis.

This guitar stays in tune, has perfect action, and perfect intonation. It plugs in and it all works fine and everything. The hardest part about this was the neck support. I had to fasion an internal support structure out of 1x3 oak board. It is SOLID. I was very impressed with how well it worked.

So without further ado:

Hahah, thanks , though I don't have much time for things like this. People need to actually schedule hang-out time with me. Projects like this generally take place on Sundays since the music shop I work at is closed.
