    Thanks Sean.

    Very interesting, and from Donny's part of the world in north eastern Ohio.

    The lengths people will go to to make guitars….


    We saw one recently you posted here made entirely of cardboard.

    Here's an ODD guitar that uses a mostly nylon body made with 3D printing:

    And another very intricate design with a body made from aluminum using 3D printing / sintering technology:

    What I found fascinating was that the guy who made the ceramic guitar was making them 50 years ago.

    I know firing clay has been around for thousands of years...but a guitar?...who would have thought.

    Its amazing what is being produced with 3-D printers now...only a few years ago this would have been thought of as the stuff of science fiction.

    I know my first reaction when I was made aware of the technology was one of disbelief. We have come so far with technology in the past 50 years its amazing
