Olaf Diegel’s 3D Printed Americana Guitar

Olaf Diegel, the man famous for designing 3D printed electric instruments, has come up with a new 3D printed guitar, which sings an ode to the Big Apple and the rest of the Land of the Free. The model is called Americana and the Les Paul-style frame incorporates visuals of NY landmarks such as the statue of liberty and a skyline of the city.

Olaf, being a part of the Cubify community, unsurprisingly used 3D Systems’ 3D printing equipment to bring the guitar to life. Even though it is a playable instrument, there are options to modify the design of the guitar according to the users’ needs. For example, pick-ups and necks are something that can be tweaked in co-operation with the artist himself.

If the styling (and naturally the manufacturing method) appeal to you, the Americana is available for order and can be yours for $4,000 – hit the source link for more information.
