Step 1: Getting the Speakers...
You need to get headphone speaker...You can just open your old headphones...How you get out that speakers,that's diffrent...Get your speaker out carefully don't break the membrane...
Step 2: Installing Microphones
If you have a speaker like the image in last page,you can place it like me(watch the image 1)
But if you have a small headphone speaker,you can place it like the second picture...
The most important is to put the speakers to the Guitar Body,because it will feel the vibrations from the strings...
Step 3: Wiring the Microphones
Now you need to get the wires to the microphones,Ok you can drill the hole in the guitar body or improvise what you can do,the guitar isn't mine,so I put the wires on the guitar body...You can use direct wire to the microphone if you using one of that,but i used both,so i needed to put the wires together!
Step 4: Installing Jack Connector
It's simply,you can use mono jack,but if you don't have it,use stereo,but,is one thing to need to remember if you use stereo jack - You need to use only L channel!!!

Step 5: Finishing
Now you need to finish your work,you need to strengthen the wires with the tape,and rechecking all!
Now you can connect your guitar with PC or amp,if you want,you can download a Guitar Rig and enable efects,then feel like on a eletric guitar :D
