Listen to my music - arhums

Update 12-19-04 - Sorry, I got more than 5,000 views so I can't update!

Read the instructions to figure out how to work the game.




Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

It doesn't work

None of the buttons work for me, so it's either a bug or my computer. It looks like it can be good, though.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Im not a guitar fan,but is fun


Rated 4 / 5 stars


I liked it but I wish there were more options in some of the areas. But it's otherwise pretty decent.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

*looks at the review before his*

And I wonder how stupid crap gets onto this site. Oh well...anyways...yeah dress up a gitaur god this has been so overdone its not fun or funny anymore. Do something original and I might just bother to give you a decent score.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

great job!!!

wow, very great job all the peices look very realistic, and alot to choose from i also liked the color changer

i made the 1968 fender strat played by jimi :)

you should have the fret dots though, and strings

its still aswome thogh, great work :):):):)


Rated 4 / 5 stars


great game. i really like everything about except for you had to apply the pickups by yourself instead of just clikcin on one and it would put it on for you. but anyway but great work!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Id like to see a more complex version with more customizing options available. Also having them appear in the spot would be better would be nice. All in all nice and original, not a long lifespan but enjoyable for those few minutes. Maybe a tuning thing next and possible making a sound as you hit the strings?

Reeking guitar coolness.

I'm not much for the "dress up" flash submissions, but this one being a guitar somehow reeked coolness that putting clothes on a poorly drawn stick figure can never accomplish.

I liked it. The sliders where good, but it felt like there should be a number or some kind of indicator between the left and right arrows for the different parts.

nice idea

I've never seen such a game & it was supprising for me:) But it's a bit boring, mabe you should input a sound, or a song and made this guitar play:)


Rated 5 / 5 stars


This was a kick ass idea. Lots of people make dress up games but usually it's crapy cartoon porn, video game characters, or cars. But a Guitar... this is actually something worth playing.

Honestly though, my only real complaint was the lack of "options" if you will. You put a great amount of time in to this and I really enjoyed how you where able to shape the body of the guitar, but the shapes where limited. They seemed all way too "Standard"... what if I want to build a heavy metal guitar? Where are all the sharp points at?

A few "fantasy" additions would be nice too. I can see how you where going more for realism here, but a few crazy ideas would just add more fun to the game.

The addition of stickers might not be a bad touch either. I personally hate punk, but I'm sure there are lots of punk kids that would love the ability to "ghetto" up their guitar by tossing stickers all over the place.

Fun little things would be nice too. Like my favorite... duck tap as a strap lock.

I know I just bitched a lot, but do not get me wrong. This is a great game. Just ideas that you might want to consider when this moves from "Demo" to the real version.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

((( NICE WORK )))

Awsome, i dont think i have seen this type before its very cool, and has alot to choose from, better backround that one was abit plain, nice dress-up though, i had fun with it...



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

great, but!

ok man I really liked it but try makin some gibson parts. The fender is nice but i dont like um too such, not very reliable, If u play guitar u know wut i mean. Kepp them comming!! ;)


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

It won't play for me

I don't know why it isn't working, but all I see is a guitar that I can't do anything to.

Seems like a cool idea, and you should definately work on it.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nice but ...

This is nice but add more stuff :P i know it's not the full one but add more stuff and lemme made my own Washburn Dimebad signature model :P

By the way good stuff dude ;) I've waste 15 minutes of my time playing with it :P but no Dimebag signature :'( this is unfair :P

good job dude


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


But there are lots of guitar bodies missing. I WANT A FLYING V OR A SHARK TALE!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

nice job

one thing, I'm not sure if it's just my computer, the entire bottom is cut off, I almost didn't see the play button.........

woohooo I love Fenders, but the only Fender I can offord is a Squire...but who wants a Squire?!?!?!?!
I just have a Strat rippoff:P
I agree with one of the other people, I love throwing stickers all over my guitar, and and duck tape strape lock is awesome!!!!
maybe put more options, well, obviously put more options. I play left-handed, maybe you should give that option in the beginning.
woohoo I made ma Jagstang!!!!!!!!!!!!
good job, I'm looking forward to seeing more stuff, unless it's a les paul, too expencive, for my taste of music, I wouldn't wanna smash up a les paul!!! plus I don't like the sound and look....ok...........I'm rambling on here...sorry........
good job.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


i like it, youve got your head in the right place. adding some other companys (gibson/epiphone, jackson, ibanez, etc) would be great. also more options for the pickguard would be nice. wood grain, humbuckers, more placable pickguards, more shapes, just more would be really cool. good demo, cant wait for the real thing though.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

good job

good job it would be nice if you could have some pre made frames like and maybe a way of making custum paint jobs.....oh ya and flying v wannu make one or sumthin like my warlock.....and i wont mention the starcaster i have(not semi-holow)


Rated 2 / 5 stars


was ok


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Not much to it.

I never really liked these type of games, this one is no exception. There just isn't enough things to do, and none of it is all that interesting either.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Pretty fun game

As a fellow guitar player, i know when i find a good guitar game. Some of the shaping of the pickboard and other stuff were alittle messy (not really) but i still found this game amuzing.
p.s. you might not like it if your not into guitars and/or don't play one.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

good stuff...

if you're into the fender style guitar. i might suggest different headstocks, or maybe even more body styles. i dunno, it's good, but i play ibanez and gibson and i'll probably never buy a fender. keep it up though!


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Its good!

Since im a guitar kinda guy i enjoyed this flash. The graphics were ok and the concept was neat good too. could be improved though, work on costomizing differnt kinds of guitars.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

good work

i likd it but u culd add more stuff but it was still fun


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great Game!

This was good!

Very original. You always see those damn build-a-car games, but this guitar idea is great!

The artwork was fairly neat, and well done. The programming was also well done.

Keep it up, and I hope to see more added to it in later versions!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


great game; especially the graphics
i could recreate my fender strat exactly

itd be nice if you had some other guitar brands & models to choose from, ex: gibson, epiphone, etc.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

yay guitars

i love music and i love guitars. wish i could play better. oh well. this was fun for a while. then i got kinda bored and started making up random monstrosities. lol. still a great game and idea. maybe with some fine more designs and that kind of stuff, it wouldn't get boring so fast.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

this is great,but i have a few additions to make

Ideas for the next one.
Just in case the person who plays this wants to create a monster,i would suggest adding Bc Rich style crazy shapes,Gibson shapes,strings(so it looks more like a guitar) and more tremolos would be good,such as the Floyd,Kahler,and G&L double fulcrum.


Rated 3 / 5 stars


It was fun, though I didn't know where all the parts were supposed to sit.. :D


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


If you're going to make more, put in more choices, some presets and more styles of guitar. I mean, who wouldn't want to make a SynthAxe? (Okay... maybe not.)
Oh yeah, the 6 is for sound because I can imagine what my guitar would sound like.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Mmm... Fender

Well, i think you could have made this a fair bit better, some of the body shaping looks kind of stupid and there aren't really a lot of choices. But I don't know how to do the action script for these type of games so you get extra points for that. Oh, the main reason why im giving this a high score is the because of Fender... yeah Fenders rock, if you had've made a Gibson one or something, I would have given you like 1/2 the score... Good one man.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Don't listen to the fucker who said he would give you half a score just because you might have chosen a different kind of brand for the guitar, and then he tells you more choices...You need all kinds of options from different brands, paint jobs, parts, finishes, you could go CRAZY with this idea...I want to see an improved version...PLEASE!!!!


Rated 2 / 5 stars

first of all, shit. second of all, shit. third .::

::. of all, well, you should be able to guess by now shouldnt you? oh no wait. ur so retarded you probobly cant read the first 2! dude, get a life. not everyone is obssessed with gitars so much that theyd want to make a virtual one! id be suprised is their was more than 100 members on this site that woul like this. there. now thats all said and done... nice graphics. aaaaaahhhhh... mission accomplished.

I LOVE it!

I play guit myself and I must say, that this is by far the most interesting game in that long line of 'dress-up'-like games on NG. I'd really like to see more inventive and unique things like your game here!

But I'd also like to see even MORE possibilities to customize your guitar. And, sadly, there's no way to test how my self-built baby would sound like. Perhaps in version 2.0? ;)


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not bad

Hey this was a pretty tight game!! Alot of designs to choose from..would be great if you can press a play button to see someone using it :P Great customization of all the parts!


Rated 5 / 5 stars


But as a guitarist,I suggest a Gibson edition


Rated 5 / 5 stars

omfg all hail you

holy fuckin shit i can't believe it someone who makes many submissions that have to do with instruments you are a god..but 1 tiny thing, can you make a bass version of some of these flashes?
*bows down*thank you



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I thought it was good but...

You need a few more brands just like everyone else has been telling you, I have nothing against Fender hell I have one(Strat 81 0f 250 I'm obsessed with my strat). So yea that would be cool to see some Gibson, Jackson, LTD, ESP, B.C. Rich, I would say Epiphone but Gibson bought the company (i think). So in conclusion keep up the good work Johnson... I mean Dizfunktion...stuff... yea... what?!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

not bad...

put some music and
more choices, and have ur guitar play a riff.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

great idea

im into guitars so this was cool. make them look more shiny and sexy, if ure ever gonna do anything anymway


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Pretty cool, but it would be better with some sound thrown in there, just like a few guitar solo's or something.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Ive seen another Flash guitar creator,this one was Jacksons,and you could change the paint job to any URL'ed image. If you did that,that would frikkin rule!!

I made your guitar look like a Nashvegas Zone Dean Guitar it's sweet WOOT Nice game man


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Something that every muscian wants

I love this, it's great, and you adjust the colour, I think I'd make mine.....purple even though it's not a very guitary color though lol. This was great though, I'm hoping to be a guitarist one day, some of my friends and staff said I should team up with Avril Lavigne lol and I see you like Pink Floyd, so does a friend of mine. This is going on my favorites.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


I love this!!! Tele's are my favorite!! One thing, how do you make hunmuckers like on the front page guitar? If you would, please reply.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

i love it

Yeah dude this is the best game ever but like everyone else has said it would be awsome to include other brands. Like maybe Gibson,Jackson,Ibanez,BC Rich,Carvin,Hamer,Dean etc. Idk but I cant wait for next version. great game!! :-)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

HOLY S#@T!!!

DUDE, how can I give you a picture, I used a real picture of a fender and I wAS ABLE TO BUILD A MAJORITY OF IT!
How can I send you a pic?
I checked your site but nothing seemed to work.
JUST TELL ME PLZ!!!!!!101 ^-^


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


I built a Fender Jagstang. Sweet game.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

SWEET!!! But, ¬_¬

Dude the game is good and all, just the fact that you can't make left-handed guitars which really bothers me as im left handed and other lefties may feel neglected ¬_¬ lol other wise fantastic!!!


Rated 3 / 5 stars

It was ok....

I thought it was fun but should of offered more options to choose form. Once you run out of options you mids as well stop playing the game. It gets boring after you use all you can to make your guitar in this flash. Good attemp though, I like your effort. Keep up the good work.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Nice but some things I miss

I miss a colorchanger for the Pickup Guard.

Can you make a Gibson one too?


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


It was cool to make a guitar but it coulda done with some strings like different colours and maybe a few more body types but other wise it was pretty cool



Rated 5 / 5 stars



Viva españa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so awesome

this is sweet it cool awesome great i love it that was cool lol


Rated 4 / 5 stars


It was ok, I was a little piffed about not having any different shapes other than the standard guitar (you know V-Shaped, Kellys, Flying V, etc) but oher than that I loved it. PLease make another and add double-necked guitars please ^^ Keep up the good work.


Rated 3 / 5 stars


Not that great...but decent...You need to have it so you can play your guitar on stage or something...then it would be a hit!


Rated 4 / 5 stars


I've seen some realy good features but its missing the part where you're actualy using a customized version of an existing guitar.

Also Gibson Guitars Rule!!!!.

Add in features of a Gibson Explorer i like the way it looks.


Rated 2 / 5 stars

Few problems.

There are no humbucking pickups, only single coils. Quilt maple and transparent finishes would be nice. There are already better guitar building systems out there and compared to those this is quite poor.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


best guitar builder game eva!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

dont like

i'm don't like


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

not too good

No humbuckers. And most important of all... NO GIBSON SG BODY!!!!!! how can you even make a game like this without the power of the SG?


Rated 1 / 5 stars


its ok.. it needs more shape choices, more picguards, strings, maybe a different custom color maker, more stocks, more fret boards, dots/lines


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good But...

You're missing the power: GIBSON SG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1


Rated 4 / 5 stars


cool game...would have been much better if the brand was Gibson instead of Fender....Gibson Les Pauls is awsome


Rated 2 / 5 stars

it was alright

i got bored of it 3 minutes after i started


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


It wasnt to bad it just needs more designs and everything


Rated 3 / 5 stars

pretty cool

This game is surprisingly fun, for about 5 min. But it would be better is you could save your final product and see it on a separate screen. More satisfying...


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


it was okay... but there weren't any strings... that kinda sucked when you were looking at it... and i agree with most people on this... more designs and seeing your final product on another screen.. like maybe seeing it hooked into an amp.. or sitting on a stand or something


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

this blows goats

there was no point to were just making a guitar and on top of that horrible graphics.


Rated 5 / 5 stars
