I have called this the iStrat ("i" because apple and "Strat" because the Fender Stratocaster!)
The basic design concept is to have something cool and ornamental, whilst having the modern functions of an internet radio. The controls are rearranged to fit as the pole pieces of the pick up.
All other parts are just for fun. With in the design i also produced a stand for it to sit on, but of course you could just hang this on the wall!
There will probably need to be a few tweaks to the design when it's printed or CNC'd but those changes should be minimal.
As a huge music fan, i could think of nothing better than having one of the most iconic guitars in my living room, and as an added bonus, this design has be certified "Wife Friendly" (by my Mrs!)
Here are a few more shots - sadly the Neck didn't render as well as i'd hoped, after an update Fusion was having trouble assigning materials to faces (not to worry though, still looks cool, and i know the guys at Autodesk will fixing that bug soon)
The file can be downloaded here
So to finish off this project, you will need all the parts for the original hack
To keep things simple i have done all the hard work by creating an iStrat OS, this is a raspian based OS with all the Python Scripting already done. It's also set to autorun everything required so all you need to do is download it and flash it onto your SD card (8GB is recommended)
Here are a few images of it's construction
You'll notice i had to hard wire the USB connection dues to space contraints.
Here's a couple of videos of the iStrat in action
Here's a video walk through (head tilting required sorry!)
