American Graffiti 3D printed Guitar

The American Graffiti 3D printed guitar: A semi-acoustic rock’n’roll guitar inspired by the movie American Graffiti and all things rock’n’roll. The guitar features a stunning hotrod flame paint job by New Zealand airbrush artist Ron van Dam.

Hidden away inside the guitar there are several cars and hot rods, a jukebox, Mel’s Diner, moving dice, microphones, Ray-bans and more! Around the body of the guitar are Neil Young’s lyrics: My my, hey hey Rock and roll is here to stay It’s better to burn out Than to fade away.

The bodies are printed, using a 3D Systems Selective Laser Sintering system (the sPro 230 SLS system). The material being used for these guitars is Duraform PA which is a very strong form of Nylon. The resolution for the prints was 0.1mm (which means that each layer that makes up the guitar body is 0.1mm thick). The guitars feature a wooden hollow box inner core that links the neck to the bridge, and flame shaped sound holes for the acoustic sound to escape from.
