Greatest Guitar Mod- Ever? 11 years 5 months ago #49959

So im a huge fan of muse and Matt Bellamy, the guitar player, has these custom manson guitars with Kaoss Pads built into them (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaoss_Pad). So i searched "Kaoss guitar" and got this tutorial on how to build it- http://www.unmaintained.com/forums/1/43/ShowThread.aspx

Im going to save up for a cheap Epiphone les Paul, Kaoss pad, and all other supplies and im going to get working on it! it seems like the coolest thing that can be done to a guitar. If you play guitar and have some idea of modding them, i advise you take a look at it!

here are some videos of them in use

heres an example of one of Matt's actual guitars

I think the sound is too electronic, you cant really hear the guitar's sound, but it is trippy. (it)kinda reminds me of a theramin.

It's not a different instrument, it's a guitar.

Hah. Teej, you and me both know that Bellamy's guitars easily cost over 3000 dollars. Matt is a decent guitar player. His Kaoss pads and pedals just add some variety to certain songs. Personally, I find kaoss just fun to look at. ;)

Good luck saving up.
Pop tart!

Aw jeez, I hate waiting for little bits and bobs...

Dad and I are trying to find a flippin' "double throw, double pole centre on" switch for my guitar. It's not as easy as typing it into Google and finding a store that sells them either.

Let me know if you find anything like that.
