3D printing is getting very popular and can now produce a variety of objects, such as guitars. Should Fender and Gibson start to worry?

Designer Olaf Diegel, in partenership with 3D printing company 3D Systems, created a range of printed guitars and basses which bodies are made of plastic. The instruments are built printing thin layers of plastic and then sticking them together one layer at a time. The designer also says that theses instruments are more resistant than traditional guitars and basses made of wood.

3D printing also allows more creative and original designs. But this technique is only used for building the body of the instrument, the neck is still made of wood (for now ?) and the hardware, tuners, pickups, etc. are still the same as the ones used on standard instruments.

The 3D printed guitars are available for sale on Cubify website, price range is $3000 – $4000.
