"The one-off model used about $3,000 worth of plastic and had a headstock 3-D printed with sterling silver; the plate on the neck was 3-D printed out of stainless steel."

All kinds of weaseling going on here. What does that even mean? "3D printed" out of stainless steel? They sent a sheet to a laser cutting service? I have an idea. Just call every manufacturing process ever "3D printing". Even baking. I just 3D printed some muffins out of eggs and flour. There.

frepnog: even tho I am pretty sure those Wal-Mart guitars are made of pressboard or dead Swedish porn stars or something.


Hey, man, the sustain you get from dead Swedish porn stars is a thing of beauty.

Skarekrough: The notion that wood quality doesn't play an integral part in the sound of electrics is absurd.


while you make good points and I am sure your experience has taught you all this...

you still sound like one of those crazy audiophiles that claim that taping magic rocks to your cables actually makes a damn bit of difference. OF COURSE build quality and materials affects the sound of a guitar, but it is SERIOUSLY less about what the guitar is made of and mostly about the talent of the person playing it. Slash could take a shiatty guitar from Wal-Mart and tune it and then play Sweet Child of Mine and it would still sound like Slash playing Sweet Child of Mine even tho I am pretty sure those Wal-Mart guitars are made of pressboard or dead Swedish porn stars or something.

way south: It sounds like you've 3D printed yourself a new goalpost to cover for not having a grasp of the subject.


I think our next Internet Meme made real should be to chip in to buy QA a 3D printer. One that makes little silver starship models.

forgotmydamnusername: LandOfChocolate: theorellior: Fark the Grateful Dead, fark Deadheads, and fark shiatty-sounding 3D-printed plastic guitars.

Well someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. How could anyone actively hate the Dead?

Easy. They were a farking self-indulgent, poorly-rehearsed bore that primarily appealed to worthless hippies.


What did the deadhead say when the drugs wore off?
This band sucks.

That was pretty funny. I'm watching two girls make out and doing some 3D printing of my own.
