Question about Activision Guitar Hero 2 for PlayStation 2

Wiring Diagram for the SG Guitar (Or other Genuine PS2 controllers)

I've built a replica Gibson Explorer body (Which looks awesome!) to fix the neck & electrics into from the standard SG, But! when I took all the parts out the wiring just fell apart (poorly soldered). Now I can't work out what goes where. The problem I have is the order the coloured wires from the main lead in that attaches to the central circuit board. There are 7 wires. if anyone can wip the back off the PS2 guitar (controller) and tell me the order they go in I will be eternally grateful, More importantly an 11 year old lad will be able to play Guitar Hero whilst stuck inside during this glorious summer! Please, Please help as he's driving me MAD!

I have a Wii Guitar Hero 5 Guitar strum bar squeaking badly.


Easy fix for an adult with average mechanical skills -- take the guitar apart (see below) and lube the strum bar with a bit of petroleum jelly. They SHOULD assemble these at the factory with some sort of lube, but it seems that they don't. Ours started squeaking badly after only two weeks.
<<<DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>
First, taking apart your guitar will VOID THE WARRANTY, so if you don't want to do that, contact the manufacturer to see what they'll do.
If you are no longer under warranty (or don't mind voiding it) remove the Wii remote: 1) Remove the Wii remote. Press the UNLOCK lever that's under where the Wii remote sits to remove the two parts that make up the guitar "body". They pop out first at the base near the 4-way directional. Just pop them back in (neck area first) to re-install. 2) Remove the "tuning" block by clicking the switch on the back to UNLOCK and pulling away from the neck. 3) Remove the 10 screws from the back of the guitar. NOTE: one is part of the strap hub on the neck. Also, the two at the very top of the neck are slightly smaller screws, so keep them separate from the rest. 4) Flip the guitar over and remove the tree screws from the cavity that holds the Wii remote. NOTE: one is under the "Warranty Void if Removed" sticker. 5) Using a flat plastic tool (like a plastic putty knife) CAREFULLY separate the two halves of the guitar body. I found it easiest to start at the bottom, where the strap connects. NOTE: (A) the bottom strap connector will come out as you separate the top of the body from the bottom. (B) Work your way to the neck slowly and carefully. You'll get there. (C) be sure to note how the spring loaded clip fits at the very top of the neck, it will fall out when you separate the two halves. When you put it back, the slanted part faces the top of the neck. *** WARNING: there's some wires, etc. inside. be sure not to damage anything as you take this apart. 6) Once inside the removal of the strum bar is pretty easy. Just take out the 4 screws from the circuit board. Next, remove the 4 screws that hold the bushings the strum bar fits into. 7) Once you have the strum bar switch out of the bushings, lube them with a bit of petroleum jelly. I just dipped a Q-Tip into the stuff and twirled it around inside the plastic bushing. Be fairly generous... you don't want to take your guitar apart again in a few weeks. Be sure to put all screws back in (two in each plastic bushing, 4 in the circuit board). Also, the screws were different sizes inside, so be sure to keep straight which screws go where. 8) Now just reverse everything you took apart. Your strum bar will be smooth as silk. Start at the very top of the neck (don't forget the little spring loaded latch--slanted part toward the top) and work your way to the bottom (don't forget to replace the strap holder.)
HINTS: Before you go crazy on the disassembly part, take some digital pictures as you go. Then if you get stuck and can't figure out where something goes you'll have something to fall back on.
We've been using our guitar for a couple of months after lubing it and it still is smooth and squeak free.

Dropped Notes


After some tinkering, I was able to fix this problem myself. When I detached the neck, I noticed that the spring-loaded pins from the guitar body had pressed hard enough on the thin contact points that they created holes that went through to the circuit board, thus causing the intermittent signal loss problems. A carefully applied drop of solder on each of the contact points in the neck has my controller now working flawlessly once again.
