The 3D Print Acoustic Guitar is an original creation by Scott Summit who is a 3D design and printing technician.

The customized guitar was designed on a laptop by Scott and then sent to 3D Systems to be printed. It is made of $3000 worth of plastic. The headstock of the musical instrument is comprised of sterling silver. The neck plate was 3D printed using stainless steel. A gold spiral design creates a circle to decorate the strumming section of the instrument.

The 3D print acoustic guitar is not just for show. It was able to handle the strings being tightened and plucked. According to Summit, the guitar emits a deeply rich and very pleasing sound when the strings are played.
