Commodore 64 transformed into hybrid bass keytar
The Commodore 64 has long been a staple of the chiptune and circuit bending scenes, but it’s not often that you see the old computer converted into a fully-fledged musical instrument. That’s exactly what enthusiast Jeri Ellsworth has done, splicing a C64’s body on to the neck of a bass guitar, allowing her to control the sound through the on-board Sound Interface Device (SID) chip.
