The Sound of 3D Printed Guitars

I got a friend and incredible guitarist, Nadav Tabak, to do a little video clip of my 3D printed guitars in action in a range of different styles of music, and showing off some of the different designs. The clip goes through chords, finger picking, funk, blues, heavy rock, progressive, and alternative rock.

The bodies of all the guitars you see and hear in this clip were 3D printed, out of Duraform material (Nylon), on a 3D Systems sPro selective laser sintering system (SLS). This technology allows us to make incredibly intricate designs that just could not be made any other way.

NOTE: There have been a lot of comments below about the acoustic merits of wood versus other materials, so I thought it worth re-emphasizing a fact: The guitars all have a wooden core inside the body that joins the bridge to the neck making them, effectively, a small bodied wooden guitar. If you want to know more about this, visit the ‘Construction’ page of my website or view the video clip on the making of a 3D printed guitar on the website..

You can find the specs of each particular guitar used in the clip on my website at
