GuitarZero Kit

A programmable circuit created with the explicit purpose of recording, saving, sharing, and replaying Guitar Hero / Rock Band song tracks. AKA: a self-playing Xbox 360 game controller to wow your friends and woo your mate. Finish those songs, earn those achievements, beat that game!

Right now, Guitar Zero supports the following games:

  • Band Hero
  • Guitar Hero 2
  • Guitar Hero 3
  • Guitar Hero: World Tour
  • Guitar Hero 5
  • Guitar Hero: Aerosmith
  • Guitar Hero: Metallica
  • Guitar Hero: Smash Hits
  • Guitar Hero: Van Halen
  • Guitar Hero: Warrior of Rock
  • Lego Rock Band
  • Rock Band
  • Rock Band 2
  • Rock Band: The Beatles

For each of these games, each song on Expert for both Guitar and Bass (or Rhythm Guitar) have track files available, and a whole host of DLC songs and track packs beyond that. It's like 1900 or 2000 songs in full, obviously including your favorites:

  • The Devil Went Down to Georgia
  • Eruption
  • Hangar 18
  • Jordan
  • Raining Blood
  • Satch Boogie
  • Sudden Death
  • Through the Fire and Flames...

Not only that, the chip is re-programmable with a TTL Serial to USB cable to either a Windows or Mac PC. This means that when the NEXT game comes out, you can download some new files and power through any tricky songs there.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Does the Guitar Zero support "Pro Guitar" in Rock Band 3?
A: No, this modification only supports the classic, 5-button guitars.

Q: Is every song a 100%, Full-Combo?
A: No. Most song files are direct conversions from the actual game file, but sometimes errors occur. The guitar will incorporate a "Play Thru" mode... where you will be able to add in a note missing from the track file as you are playing the song.

Q: What guitars work with the chipset?
A: Xplorer (GH2) and Les Paul (GH3). We have plans to expand to the Stratocaster immediately, but you can help guide which controllers we incorporate next with some higher donation levels.

Q: How difficult is the installation?
A: If you're handy with a soldering iron, that's all the experience you'll need. We'll provide detailed instructions on what to solder where. We're exploring options now to minimize the amount of soldering end-users will need to do by utilizing pin/socket interfaces rather than soldering discrete wires.

You will need the following:

  • Soldering iron
  • Solder
  • Discrete wire (xx ga, xx" total length)
  • T10 Torx driver (Les Paul guitar disassembly)
  • Wire cutters
  • Electrical tape

Q: What exactly comes with the "kit"?
A: The Guitar Zero CCA (pre-assembled and pre-programmed) and complete and detailed instructions showing exactly where to mount and how to tie it into the guitar.

Q: I live in {non-US country}, can I have one?
A: Sure! We currently ship to the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia, and are actively working on making orders to other countries a possibility.  But for now, just Contact Us to request a Guitar Zero with your address so we can calculate appropriate shipping and send you a custom invoice.

Q: Can Star Power or Overdrive be activated?
A: Yep! Neither the whammy bar nor the tilt sensor are actuated by the Guitar Zero circuitry, so any use (or extra generation) of SP/OD must be handled manually.
