Americana 3D printed Guitar


Americana 3D printed Guitar

The Americana 3D printed guitar: A guitar inspired by a recent trip to New York, an amazing city that is full of life, both night and day, and that triggered a fascination with American symbolism and patriotism. The guitar features a stunning paint job and airbrushed eagle head by New Zealand airbrush artist Ron van Dam.

The guitar features a sky scape of New York City inside the guitar, with some of its most famous landmarks including, the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Freedom Tower, Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium, St Patricks Cathedral, and the Love sculpture by artist Robert Indiana.

The bodies are printed, using Selective Laser Sintering, by 3D Systems in the USA, on an 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 inner core (choices of Mahogany or Maple, etc.) that links the neck to the bridge, which allows us to customize the sustain and tone of the instrument to suit the musician, and a number of options for hardware, etc.
