AEC GUITAR by Ember Leona of openInvent group and Bitsfit Entertainment.

I wanted to have one guitar that I can carry around and also plug into an amp for that electric sound. To make this project I had to ground the strings so I completely removed the pins on the bridge/soundboard.

What you see is misleading there were several planned problems to fix. Like how to ground guitar. How to install strings. How to remove pickguard without destroying everything.

I learned a lot. I learned coil tapping, made two pickups a humbucker, and added a piezo punch button so I can have all pickups and piezo at once now. If the five way switch is up middle. Guitar 's 4 sale make offers

The piezo pickup kinda shorted the circuit and makes a fuzz

I plan on putting a circuit I found on ebay to use sound to light LEDS.. Also been working on a mutranome project. And a MIDI POISON MIDI MESSAGE MODIFIER prototype is at and
