Scarab 3D printed Guitar
The Scarab 3D printed guitar was designed specifically for laser sintering, one of the common 3D printing technologies that allows for the manufacture of full strength, extremely complex parts. The entire body, including all the little insects inside the body, was printed as a single component, which could not be manufactured any other way.
The Scarab can be fitted with your choice of neck and hardware. One of the beauties of 3D printing is that it allows us to relatively easily customise the guitar to suit your needs. In the case of the Scarab, we can add anything you want onto the space on the back of the guitar, or modify almost anything else you want. And, of course, it’s just as easy to make the guitar left-handed as right-handed.

The typical price for a Scarab guitar (including hard-case, excluding freight) is US$3000 with hardware as per the specs below. Please contact us with whatever hardware preferences you have and we will get back to you with an exact price for your guitar. If you want your name, or the name, or logo, of your band embedded onto the back of the guitar, we do that at no extra cost.
