How to make a changeable cover for your guitar hero 3 guitar,Gifts so you can print out a new face plate whenever you like, have a different faceplate when you like without having to buy a new one. Website Design Cornwall.

My son Robert (and me)(and me) wanted a faceplate for his new guitar hero 3 guitar, after looking at some we thought that it would be a shame that he would be stuck with the one he had chosen, so we thought outside the box and decided it would be an interesting make one, and then to post on-line, it is quite and easy project and it has been quite informative and fun for Rob and me.

Step 1: Mark out faceplate

Get a piece of perspex 2mm thick and then remove your faceplate from you guitar, and place it on the perspex. and mark around it using a pen. dont forget to mark the inner holes for the buttons.

Step 2: Making the grinding table

First drill a hole in each of the marked holes, this will let you get the grinder into them.
be careful drilling not to press hard because perspex cracks really easy, put it between 2 pieces of wood to drill to help it but no need to be too exact as they are just to get the grinder in.
Next bit to do is to make up your grinding table, I used a dremel clamped in a workbench, and then we raised the height with bits of wood to get just the cutter showing.
ok i have something kinda stupid to ask ok i got gh3 for a ps2 and it doesn't have a detachable cover how would i do it?

Hi, you could cut out a piece of perspex and attach it with a few velco strips over the top of your existing guitar, or use 4 velcro dots with a peice of perspex cut to size and when you print out your cover you could just cut 4 holes for the velcro that would keep the perspex from moving then, or you could drill into your controller (obviously this will damage it) and araldite/glue 4 nuts into it at each corner and then you would be able to screw the cover on. let me know how you get on :) Ian
Cool. I might post an Instructable soon on how to do something like this to the old Guitar Hero controllers. Nice job.
Yeah that would be cool! I have Guitar Hero 2 not 3. Do you have all of them?
Yeah. 1,2,3.
Lucky
not lucky just rich
i have 1, 2, and 3. i also pre ordered 4 and aerosmith.in addition i pre ordered on tour for nds
Aerosmith isn't as good as the advertisments said. I think that the Guitar Hero: Metallica coming out in 2009 will be 1,000x better. I beat aerosmith in 2 days even though I barely played it
i think its better to have an assortment of songs like gh3.i would know cuz ihave it
I do too. I also have rockband. I can beat every song on expert drums except this one I bought called "Blinded by Fear" by At the Gates. But I also play a real drumset...
good instructable. nice neat result. good work
You clicked the wrong thingy LOL Scroll ALL THE WAY down to click "Add comment"
i know how to do that but didnt care to.
cameleon should be chameleon. good instructable though
very nice just 2 days ago I was looking at the custom skins and I said why cant I do this my self then I tried and well you know what happened it was to big to print. I don't think I'm going to do this but its still very cool.

Very nice, I must do this! One thing though you said about the velcro thing but since you stuck the velcro on the main body would that mean you can't put the original on or....i'm confused but it is a very nice instructable.

I added a new step to this showing where the velcro should go. have a look at step 10. good luck Ian p.s. don't forget to send me a photo!

Hi, don't stick the velcro under the perspex or as you say the old one will stick out, we were going to get one piece of velcro about 2 inches long with the furry bit being sticky and the hooked bit not sticky, then we were going to cut the fury bit into 3 sections. then throw away the middle section leaving you with 2 short sticky fury bits and one long 2inch hooked bit now I would stick the first small furry bit to about 1inch above where the guitar strap connects at the back and then stick the other small furry bit on the outside of the perspex on the black boarder about the same height as the other bit we just stuck, now put the hooked bit on them going round the edge of the guitar, this would give it just a bit of down pressure. the guitar has a boarder round it so that will keep the perspex from sliding out, and the cutouts round the buttons will keep it even better in place, and then at the other end the fret board of the neck stops that end from moving. because there are so many things keeping it in place ours didn't need velco. if I find a way of posting a pic I will do a drawing. good luck and send me a photo of yours when it is done!!

LionBrand, ahh didnt know what that was, I see a tick box and it has to be ticked :) glad you liked it, it is our first.

hmm crocheting a guitar case? not cool but possible lol!! fetch the needles....
It's a great Instructable, but the LionBrand Yarn is like a crocheting type of contest, and this is not it, so it has to be removed, just saying. :-)
Nice job! I added this to my Guitar Hero Mods group, join if you want. And you can't add this to the LionBrand Yarn challenge, this has nothing to with that, sorry. :-O
