Hobbyist creates giant NES guitar controller

A hobbyist has managed to construct his own “Guitar Hero” controller that resembles a huge NES controller that’s been cut into the guitar shape. Using parts found around the house, wood and the Xbox controller’s rumble pad, he crafted this NES guitar that he plans to use for an upcoming game he’s developing, aptly named, 8-bit hero. The game will be a Guitar Hero style game that features only classic 8-bit music such as the themes from Super Mario, Dr Mario, Tetris and so on. The game is far from complete, but at least he’s got the guitar done, and he’s uploaded a video of it onto YouTube. He’s even named it the NES Paul (possibly a tribute to and wordplay of the iconic Gibson Les Paul) Check it out after the break. What other controllers would you like to see modified into a guitar controller?
