We came across this on Shoryuken.com, a site dedicated to fighting game fanatics.  Within their large community (80,000+ members) we found a little golden nugget of a custom joystick made by username “degauss“:

Custom carbon fiber gaming joystick

degauss posted his custom carbon fiber and fiberglass joystick in a thread dedicated to showing off custom joysticks…regardless of being interested in carbon fiber or not, there’s 520+ pages of some pretty awesome stuff.

His custom joystick features the following:

  • All Seimitsu buttons with quick disconnects
  • Seimitsu LS-32-01
  • Dual-PCB with a multi-console Chtulhu
  • MadCatz 360 retro arcade PCB
  • Imp electronic switch to change between the Cthulhu and 360 PCB
  • RJ-45 Mod
  • The mounting plate will also fit a Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT, the Sanwa buttons with the larger nut will also fit

Of course, the case is made from carbon fiber and fiberglass, and a 6mm acrylic bottom with rubber feet.  The entire stick weighs just 1.7kg or 3.75 lbs.  The craftmanship looks great, and it’s really an amazing looking piece.  Here’s a few more pictures to gawk over:
