Wesley’s Retrofit: A Guitar Hack

Ok, yes. It is scary putting your CNC to someone else’s wood. ESPECIALLY, when that wood is already a perfectly functioning guitfiddle.

The goal was to retrofit some Roland GK-2A electronics into a Peavey guitar. Doable? I thought so. Here is how it turned out. I used most of the parts and integrated them into the pick guard. The switches were some I already had, as the original switches weren’t quite right. It was a challenge and I really hope there are no cold solders, but all-in-all, a really fun and challenging project. I hope it works when Wes plugs it in.

P.S., I didn’t take a photo of every drill I made, or all the steps. This is just an overview.

Enjoy.

    1. It wasn’t too bad. Only one booboo that I was able to fix. I do wish I had routed out just a bit more wood. Would have made things slightly easier.
