Introduction: Low Cost LM386 Based Guitar Amplifier

Took reference from LM386 datasheet and below websites.

The lm386 is a cool little IC. I used a simple set up with it to go to a set of LEDs instead of a speaker, and they flashed when u hit a note. Naturally the LEDs got wired into the pickgaurd.

pls upload circuit diagrams

this is my final video with the amp

I guess you might think im a bit annoying, but this is also missing all the steps (like the vodka bottle lamp) - There is not much instructable in a few pictures and links to other sites with the actual information.

I posted the links from where I took reference, but in case you need help, you can put the questions here I'll answer that :)

Mh76dk. You have made no instructables to date. You should make something before you criticize others. I think the project was awesome! And some are better than others at organizing there thoughts onto paper. again I say make something so we can critique you!
