Description

Now this is definitely a new type of electric guitar! I'm not sure why I started this build but it spiraled out of control from there...

I used most of the same parts from my last build (that I inevitably got bored of) but replaced the Radeon Pro WX4100, which has by far the worst driver support I've ever encountered, with a Quadro P1000. At that point I had to get some CableMod cables to match the wood finish on the guitar, and cannibalized an old case for the front panel USB and headphone jack. Just to finish it off I got some guitar foot pedal switches and amp lights from a local guitar parts distributor of mine, NextGenGuitars, and then got an acrylic top!

All in all, not a bad way to spend a Christmas break...

Merry Christmas!

Nice and clean, looks great. What kind of workflow do you normally have?

This gives new meaning to the phrase "guitar case." Can it play Free Bird and Crysis at the same time?

On a technical level, I'm curious about your airflow. I see you have a fan there but is there was some kind of passive vent anywhere else for continuity of air flow? Also, how do you run your I/O cables including your video cables?

This is amazing. I am amazed. This needs to be featured. Soon.

Thanks! The acrylic top has a 1/4" gap all-around to let some air in and also has a few holes drilled into it. The solitary fan is placed in the guitar soundhole- because I'm incapable of cutting a hole that big- and is set to exhaust. Seems to work out fairly well for temps.

As much as possible, I'm going to be using wireless peripherals but for what I have to wire in, there's a 1" hole at the bottom of the guitar (where the pickup jack or strap pin would traditionally be) where I run cables through.

Wow! Cool idea.

How do you access the motherboard's I/O?

Love the idea! This turned out great and I'm sure it was quite a bit of work. Nice choice of colors on that cable sleeving and Merry Christmas to you as well!
