After our kids are in bed, Jason and I can be found downstairs rocking out to Guitar Hero
. While I'm sure we both look like total dorks, and I am admittedly pitiful at any song that is even mildly complicated, we still have a blast. A little spirited competition and some classic rock tunes are just what we need at the end of a long day.
There are lots of instructions out there that will tell you how to customize your guitar, but none that are quite as clear and well documented as these. This instructable walks you through the dis-assembly, painting and reassembly of your Guitar Hero SG controller
. You'll be taking out nearly 40 screws, so clear your workspace and get organized before you get started. Once you have it apart, painting can be as simple or as detailed as you want. The metal finish that this instructables author chooses looks great. He suggests using a spray paint, but you'll still need to be careful and take your time. If you want to get really creative, try stenciling on a some flames or even a design of your own.
