but is that all i need? , if you want something like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJkuvF4Gur4&feature=related

you would need to route out space for it on the guitar body, and then have all the midi connection space routed out too.

its a lot of hassle, if you want it on a guitar just buy a Manson's Matt Bellamy signature guitar. theyre not that much IIRC

they've sold all of them but look out for a used one perhaps http://www.mansons.co.uk/shopping/categories/manson-custom-electric-guitars/manson-signature-guitars/mb1-standard/

Oh yeah... 3300 GBP... no big deal.

TS, your best option is something like this http://twocherriesinstruments.ecrater.com/p/10007783/kaoss-pad-guitar-midi-controler

If you install that on your guitar you can control the KP from your guitar with it. I bought a kit from this seller myself. A bit of soldering work, but worth it.

No, that is just the circuit board from the kit I posted.

Unless you already have a touch screen, you should be getting the one I posted which includes the circuit board, rotary encoder, and touch screen.

To put it in a guitar, you'd have to route out the space for the circuit board, route out a little shelf-type thing for the touch pad, drill the holes for the wires, put the touch pad in the shelf thing, then screw a plastic frame around it to keep it from falling out.

Can you get the Kaoss pad to sound like the proximity wah, Fernandes sustainer and fuzz? No. Why would he have installed them if the Kaoss would do it all?

There are other ways to achieve wah/auto wah and fuzz though.

The second link doesn't do anything.

What is it you specifically want to do? If you want a Kaoss Pad, you'll need a Kaoss Pad and a way of controlling it from your guitar ie the Midi controller above.

Then you'll need a Zvex Fuzz Factory £120-210, Kill switch £5.00, £240 for a Zvex Probe Wah, £159 Fernandes Sustainer. $140 for the Kaoss controller and £300 for a Kaoss Pad itself. You'll also need to be handy with a soldering iron, a router to cut some holes in your guitar and you'll need power to your guitar to run everything or a bucketful of batteries. So that's about £1200 or $1900 for parts plus guitar. You could save some by buying second hand or shopping around.

If you need to know how to fit each component you'll have to look at the manufacturer's instructions but bear in mind that stuff like the Zvex kit are pedals that you'll be pulling apart you need to know what you're doing, this is not beginner stuff. Link below states how complicated it is.......
