Wireless Guitar Hero Controller

[John] sent in his PS3 wireless guitar hero project. The concept seems popular today. Hopefully he’ll write up some instructions – but it looks pretty straight forward – he embedded a normal PS3 controller inside the body of the guitar hero controller. For now you can gaze upon the high res version. Update: He passed along a couple more shots of the project. Update2: Here’s the instructables on building your own.

  1. i don’t think i much see the point of this today. they sell wireless guitars that, well… work. i had converted one of my guitars to wireless and it worked ok, but when the official wireless ones came out, my hack-job went into the trash.

  2. I was wondering when someone was going to make this after that comic came out. I don’t really see the point in it because the wire never gets in my way when I’m playing.

  3. Now, a better hack would be to rig a connector jack so you can plug in a big-ole heavy guage 1/4″ instrument cable to drag around your living room like a real rock star. Only sissies use wireless guitars. :-P


  4. The mod looks cool, but it it would be a lot more interesting if there were instructions. The post says, “It looks straight forward…” Unfortunately, the picture isn’t high enough resolution to really see the solder points. John, you’ve got a really cool concept, and it looks like you spent a long time making it, let us know _how_ you did it. Maybe make an Instructable.com guide, that would be rocken-like-docken!

  5. Yay!

    I won’t have to buy 2 new Guitar Hero controllers when Rock Band comes out!

    Thank you, this is very useful, and will give me something to do over the weekend.

  6. to #10 Yes you can use a ps2 controller for GH2! I am using one right now cuz I’m to cheap to buy an official guitar right now. The shoulder buttons and x do most of the work. L2=Green L1=Red R1=Yellow R2=Blue X=Orange Left analog stick up=whammie bar select=star power triangle=cancel

    hope that helps you out.
