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.

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.

Step 2: Middle and Top
(Sorry for the sideways pictures.)
Here's the main part of the stand.It's eight "stories" of a blue-rod-square tower if my lingo makes any sense. The yellow rods are bracing to support it. After the eight sections there is one more set of blue rods attached to a blue-purple connector which is where the neck of the guitar is placed. The neck supports are just three grey rods with some blue and white connectors on them to keep them from bending and twisting under the weight of the guitar.
