Man Builds a Gameboy & Guitar In One!

Guitar Boy! Now you're playing with musical power!

Fibbef, a tech-savvy admin on the BitFixGaming boards, custom-built a impossibly awesome axe that combines two of his passions: jamming on a guitar and classic gaming. Guitar Boy, which he constructed for BitFix Gaming 2015 Game Boy Classic build-off, is a fully-functional electric guitar with a Classic Game Boy body. It includes a handmade A/B/Start/Select buttons as well as a D-pad made from wood.

But the most impressive feature is a 5-inch LCD screen installed beneath the guitar strings that plays Game Boy games. It runs on a Raspberry Pi B+ with the RetroPie v2.3 software.

Check it out in the video below.
