Well, I like how they're made now:
But I really enjoy people stepping outside the box:
Imagine if all the guys who smashed their guitars onstage in the 1960’s had had guitars made of Legos.
It would have been easier on their guitar techs, who then only had to hire a passel of kids to reassemble the guitar & worked for Tootsie Rolls.
I was thinking more along the lines of 3D printed guitars in general not necessarily that design.
(sigh) So many new guitar builders out there.The whole enchilada
I had my first encounter withh 3d printers about 20 years ago.Whole bunches of stuff are being 3D printed. Welcome to 2022. Aircraft parts, houses, the whole shot.
That OP guitar looks uggerly, but a lot of "normal" looking guitars are already out there, done on 3D printers.
Probably half of my gear on Mars will be done from local raw materials and printed on the 3D printers we bring along.
I couldn't even get a 3D printed capo to work. I don't like the thought of my guitar bursting under string tension while I'm playing it.
But I'd play that before I shoot a 3D printed gun... Or a Glock... Same thing.
I sure wouldn’t trust a gun.
Did you actually try printing a capo? Some assembly required?
What do you do, make it all out of spring steel?
Just because you can print entire assemblies, doesn’t mean everything can get made out of one material.
