Gakken synth guitar mod

YouTuber Startwave’s SX-150 guitar is rather excellent –

a quick and terrible demonstration of my modded sx-150. i replaced the original slide thingy with a softpot from trossen robotics and i added an fsr (force sensitive resistor) to control volume or crazy resonance distortion (if the res is switched on). sounds nice, very expressive and fun to play. this is recorded dry, with no fx.

The ribbon controller neck looks quite playable – gig-worthy even. This mod is somewhat similar to one featured in the volume of ‘Otona No Kogaku’ included with the kit. I just wish he demoed a bit more riffing as the little we did hear seemed to hold much potential.
