    It's possible, but I'm not sure how it would help you play the guitar. Unless, you're doing it to sabotage someone.

     Haha awesome I love it !
    Do the components not get annoying and catch on the strings when you play though?

    idk if that is a problem, but if it is, maybe u cood laminate it, buy like melting clear plastic or using a machine or taping it, to prevent that problem. 

    you could also simply cut out this shape from any computer chip
