Thanks to the Wii Accessory plug on the controller, we can make all of our connections without disassembling the guitar. The plug hooks up with the Wii Nunchuck breakout adapter very simply!

Plug Things In to Other Things

Here's all we need to connect:

  • Nunchuck adapter to QT Py with a STEMMA QT cable
  • Wii controller Accessory Plug to Nunchuck adapter (be sure to follow the "Notch Up" directions
  • QT Py to computer with USB cable

If you want to keep it super simple, this is all you need to do. Just push the parts into the empty Wiimote slot and you're done!

Fancy Mode

If you want to get a bit fancy with it, you can create a small notch in the access panel on the back of the guitar.

Be careful with cutting instruments and wear eye protection.

Open the access panel, then mark the door where you want to file out a notch for the USB cable.

Use a round file (or utility knife, small saw, and sandpaper, etc.) to create the notch.

Plug the USB cable into the QT Py and then close the access panel.

You're all set!
