Sorry if this has been posted before. But I found really cool project through stumble that teaches you how to manually install a USB outlet on your guitar. http://machrone.net/usbguitar/

I disagree Slipknot is more technical than Necrophagist and more brutal than Suffocation, that's why I do hardcore dances to it with my 14 year old friends.

No offense intended BadBishop, but that article seemed poorly thought out.

1 - He began the project intending to have a second input to the USG card and made the jack plate accordingly. Then he found out he couldn't connect a second input, so that jack is now useless.

2 - He has a headphone jack, but nothing to drive the headphones with. I really doubt that USB card will provide headphone out. He makes no mention of where that gets connected. Is this ANOTHER useless jack?

3 - Connecting a card with unknown input impedance might be a tone sucker. We really don't know anything about the specs on this card. Might be a concern, maybe not. Who knows?

This idea LOOKS great on the surface, but I strongly urge doing a bit of research before anyone dives head-first into a project with so few details as this one has.


... The pictures are pretty though.

first ask yourself, "what do i want to accomplish by putting a usb in my guitar?"

It's useful if you have a preamp on your guitar and want to use GuitarRig or something like that. Else, your tone won't be that great.
^ seconded.

Äh, Sie wollen also mit Schlitz.

even if you did this you would need the drivers for it. Imagine needing drivers to work your guitar
