I noticed what looks like a phone jack on the bottom of the guitar. I read in the manual it is for an effects pedal, which is not out yet. I really want to know more about this. Anyone have any knowledge of it?

Its probably just going to be some distortion or wah pedal that nerds pay an upwards of $30 for. Just go buy a real pedal.

So says a non-nerd on Xbox-Scene forums rolleyes.gif

I don't own the Xbox guitar but I understand it's a standard phone jack... and if you look at where it connects to the PCB, it's only two points.

So I'm thinking simple on/off switch. Try wiring a switch (or better yet, gut and stick a switch in a real pedal wink.gif) to maybe the center two connectors on the RJ11 and see what happens! And if not a switch, put a potentiometer in there instead...

The jack is the same used on the xbox wireless racing wheel, aka a standard phone jack. I pluged the pedals from the racing wheel into it and nothing, no good. I dont have a source but I read eariler today from a segment from an interview with one of the delveopers that no pedals are planned for this version of guitar hero, but guitar hero 3 will have functioning effects pedals, they put the port there so you whould not have to buy a new guitar when the next game comes out. ROCK ON.

Haha, The magic smoke. I am very tempted to try this. It would be cool to do. Unfortunatly, i'm broke until friday. I will head to the local guitar shop and pick up a cheapo distortion pedal and see what happens.
