Introduction: Duct Tape Guitar Hero Faceplate

This Instructable is going to tell you how to make an awesome looking faceplate for guitar hero 3, using duct tape. If you want to keep your original faceplate, than you will have to buy a new one to put duct tape on.

Step 1: Materials

Duct Tape
Guitar Hero Les Paul Controller (Any Console)
Scissors
Exacto Knife (Optional)

Step 2: Taking Off the Neck

Now you will want to take off the neck. To do so, pull the lock, and slide the neck out.

Step 3: Removing the Faceplate

Now take off the faceplate. Open the lock, and pull off the the rest of it.

Step 4: Duct Tape

Whip out your duct tape and start taping. Just roll out strips as long as the guitar, and lay them down, so when finished, the whole front will be covered in tape.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Now cut out where the holes are in the original faceplate, and and about half an inch in from the side, where the neck covers over it. (See Picture) It might be easier to use an exacto knife, but I just cut it with one blade of the scissors, and then peeled it off.

Step 6: Shred!

Put all your pieces back together, (Don't worry if you have to struggle a bit to get the neck back on.) and play some Guitar Hero!

cant we use cardboard or ply wood to make a face plate(trace the shape of the faceplate on to cardboard or wood)? yea use cardboard as a base for the tape, or make one with wood, sand it smooth, paint and add protective coat or just put varnish! Duck brand duct tape has lots of colors and designs, i might do one in a zebra print, or maybe just make it alternating between hot pink and black. ooooo, or make it out of plexiglass so u can see through it!!!!!!!!!!
