3D Printed Guitar…another instrument from the land of CAD!

3D printed guitar composed of suspended polycarbonate “tendons” by Derek Manson.  As a musician my first question would have been about the tone of the instrument using these new materials.  Derek’s already thought of that…the main body is made from polycarbonate polymer & the central core is CNC machined wood which still allows for excellent tonal properties.  The fully functional 3D printed flute was exceptionally cool but this is a wonderfully artistic application of the technology to one of the most beloved instruments of our time.  Reminds me of a 3D version of Eddie Van Halen’s “Frankenstein” guitar!
