Stringy synthesizes guitar sounds using an efficient implementation of the Karplus–Strong string plucking synthesis algorithm inside of a tiny PIC microcontroller. It can play plays notes over five octaves (twelve notes in each octave) in either acoustic or electric guitar style.
Stringy is a remix of MadLab's 'Funky guitar' who also fully implemented the PIC's firmware.
You'll need speakers, a 9V battery and a piece of wire to act as a 'wand', in addition to the contents of the kit.
Assembly and much more information is available here.
