Need Advice On Led Electronics

Recommended Posts

If the guitar does not have a 9v battery in it for current electronics, then you will need to install one to power the leds. The only power traveling through the actual guitar cable is generated in the pickups by the vibrating strings which is far, far too small to power leds. As for having the leds turn on when it's dark, you'll need an LDR, and a relay along with some resistors and leds, of course. What does all this mean, you ask? It means you've got some googling to do.

The electronic additions can be enabled with a stereo jack. wiring it correctly will not allow current to pass when there is no cable plugged in, while turning on your sensor and led's when there is a cable plugged in
