Q: Can you still play games on a Guitendo?
A: No. I only use broken gaming consoles. FUrthermore, to make the guitar structurally sound, I have to remove key components on the interior of the console case. HOWEVER: As of December, 2018, I am offering a limited edition option where I mount a working NES Classic Mini board inside the guitar. Check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_xOof25cxI
Q: Why are you permanently destroying “broken” NES systems? Can’t they can be fixed?
A: The consoles I use for guitars are sourced from repair shops. These particular units have burnt mainboards, blown sound modules, elemental damage, or are otherwise deemed “too far gone” to be repaired.
Q: Why are there scratches, chips, marks, discoloration, etc. on my Guitendo?
A: It’s difficult to source a broken game console in mint condition. Likewise, most of the used guitars and parts I find have at least *some* wear and tear. I’m of the opinion that the mojo of road-wear makes for a “cooler” end-product. That being said, I can certainly source all new parts and find a pristine system (at a significant price increase) if you want it.

Q: Do you build fretless / fannned fret / multi-string or other oddball instruments?
A: Like I said, I’ll try anything once!
Q: Can you make me a left handed one?
A: Sure, weirdo.
Q: How much are they?
A: The standard model Guitendo is $450. Basses start at $475. The sky is the limit with custom orders.
Q: How long does a build take?
A: We’re currently working on a 6-8 week build time. Custom orders vary.
