Abstract

The paper suggests to reflect and to discuss on Innovation through the 3D printing applied in the field of guitar design. The use of specific 3D modeling software and the development of 3D printing technologies for the creation of objects through additive production, favors new design processes increasingly oriented to the research of complex and personalized forms of musical instruments and electric guitars in particular. Design studios and small companies, with the collaboration of musicians and violin makers, experiment with new languages and advanced production techniques to make guitars, but also very light and transparent electric violins, as well as the prototype of a sax or the concept of a piano.
