The Heavy Metal guitar: The world’s initially 3D printed aluminium guitar! This guitar was turn it intod to explore what metal additive making (3D printing) is capable of, and to advantageous know the intricacies of the whole process, of “turn it into for additive making”, to the actual printing of the guitar, to the post-processing that is required to go of a printed metal part straight of the machine to a usable masterpiece. The turn it into of the guitar is purposefully hard to quite hustle the limits of metal additive making.

The guitar showcases a maple wooden inner core, a Warmoth custom neck, Seymour Duncan pickups, a Schaller bridge, and Gotoh 510 mini locking tuners.
