Music and gaming are no strangers to each other, but the guys at GetLoFi have taken this partnership to a whole new level. They’ve found an alternative use for an old Nintendo Entertainment System in the form of a fully functional six-string electric guitar.
The guitar’s body is made from a reused NES case while the guitar’s neck is one that you would find in any standard guitar. For the purposes of acoustic integrity, the body has solid oak wood inside. Since it works in the same way as your regular electric guitar, this NES electric guitar also has the following features:
- Adjustable height Single coil pickup
- Output Jack and Volume knob
- Strap Buttons
- Intonation has been adjusted
- Stays in tune really well
In addition, the makers have taken into consideration serious musicians who want to play around with the instrument to suit their preferences. As such, there is room inside for custom electronics that you may want to add. Each guitar is custom made so no two are the same. How’s that for uniqueness?
The NES guitar goes for $150 plus shipping, which can be anywhere from $12 to $32.
The sad news, though, is that they only made a couple of these guitars, and they’re already out of stock. On the upside, there is a possibility of the guys making more of these guitars. Just send an e-mail to [email protected] for more details.
Now to tease you a bit more, here’s a video of the NES guitar in action.
$150 does not seem such a bad price for this, don’t you think?
