Hello, all you Guitar Hero 3 stands. What you see below is a stand I put together quickly for the all-new Gibson Les Paul wireless guitar controller that comes with Guitar Hero 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360. I got the PS3 one, but the guitars are the exact same thing for both, so it compatible with either. Not sure how it will work with past versions or alternate guitars but it does it's job for mine. (Even though leaning the guitar against the wall would take up less space, I like making stuff out of Knex that I can use.)

Without further ado, here is the stand I made. I just took a bunch of pictures it's pretty easy to make just by looking at them, so if you have any questions just post them and I'll answer them if I can.

**Sorry for the sideways images, Instructables won't let me rotate them.

Step 1: Bottom

The bottom consists of a cross-base with red and grey rods to support it on the three sides, with a more heavy duty triangular leg to support it in the front to support. The guitar you can copy this leg all around to make it look nicer and be symmetrical but I found no need for it.

Above the base is the basket which attaches to the tower of blue rods and purple connectors with yellow cross braces. The two views I supplied should be enough for you to accurately build it or create your own basket, if you don't like mine or your guitar won't fit.

Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!
the instructions look fine to me ,but I would rather see some part by part.

I'm sorry. This is actually my second instructable, but the reason for lack of steps and directions is because I felt this was a pretty basic thing to make, and only required the pictures I took to accurately build. Nonetheless, I will add some more steps.

can it also hold a real electric guitar which weight around 4kilogramm? *lol* no, but a very good instructalbe how to keep your guitar hero guitar away cool!
No, it can't, but if you make the base a little bigger it might be perfect for an acoustic guitar. I've got 2 electric guitars and 2 acoustic ones, but only 3 stands, so I just might search through my pile of old crap in the basement for my old knex, and make one of these.

you should post that even though its probably broken up XD
yeah it's very broken XD I'm sure you could make one it's a simple concept.
why didnt you put the skull stickers on the buttons? :P
because??? that would make it all cruddy. there's no way I could play with the stickers on the buttons. besides they're ugly.
please port the instructible
its nothing that special build your own version of it expand upon your self. that will make you a good knex builder building something of your own.
Post it
its realistic and every thing but it sways a lot and some times tips over.
oops forgot to rotate :P lol just save them and rotate them if you want.

I modded the stand to accommodate the larger World Tour guitar and a microphone. Maybe I'll post it sometime.

This thing needs a part list
thank you noahw for your comment, i would like to add to it and say, please include a screen shot of ALL the necessary parts.

Sorry, I didn't count the pieces, and it is still together, do I don't feel like taking it apart to count the pieces. There aren't that many pieces, so you should be able to build it if you have a decent amount of KNEX.
i know, but it would have been extremely helpful, as i tried to make it with 1 color scheme of knex, but i didnt know if i had enough.......
