This is my first instructable ever, so please be nice!

My buddy was too lazy to look online for solutions, and actually fix his rock band guitar - so I stole it, the game, his other guitar, and his mic. It wouldn't register down strums, and as you know, up strumming an entire song is just no fun.

I have to give credit to Ben Sones from Quarter To Three. His fix was the inspiration to mine. Plus his seems more reliable.

Step 1: Open it up!

First you've gotta get your guitar open. Flip over the guitar to the back side, and take out all the screws. You don't need to take out the tiny battery compartment screw. Take note of where everything goes too since there are three lengths of screws. I used an outline of the guitar and plugged the screws in the outline where they go in the guitar.

After having a broken guitar for 2 months, I got the strummer working in less than 5 minutes. Thanks for saving me from buying another controller!
Thank you. Although my guitar has the magnetic sensor, the plastic strummer still broke. But with your guide, I was able to figure out what was what and got it fixed with some super glue. Oh, the paper diagram for the screws was ingenious and something I'll be doing from now on with everything! Thanks again!
I'm glad you liked it! I'm also glad I finally got a comment!
