AweSome Musical Instruments, the manufacturer of high performance pickup switch upgrade products, has released their first 3D printed guitar. This new instrument (AWE-3DG) comes standard with two T.V. Jones Power'Tron humbucker pickups and uses their T4-Switch to give you a Grand Canyon wide range of 76 pickup tones.
The body is printed out of very fine nylon powder. Although hollow it is designed to appear similar to a LP-style solid body instrument and is appropriately reinforced in the neck-to-bridge area.
It is available only in its natural white body finish and if you wish to customize you instrument the company offers the option to have the body painted to your specifications.
The 3D printed guitar may not look so stunning as Olaf Diegel's 3D printed Americana, but as a multi-tone performance pickup specialist AweSome Musical Instruments is able to add a pure analog pickup tone power and give you access to many of those hidden seductiveand aphrodisiac-like pickup tones.
The price of this 3D printed guitar starts at US$4,800. To order it you need to specify you wish on their website to be put on their 3D guitar wait list. The current wait time is around eight to ten weeks.
