Guitar Technology Fabbed

GooCart reports on a musical adventure involving his ’98 R8 honeyburst guitar and 3D printing. Evidently the pick guard did not fit, so he “scanned the ’53 GT guard into my 3d software and modified it for the R8, then I used our 3d printer for this cutting template”. The new part (pictured) will be used as a template for a router.

This is a great example of how 3D technology can be used in consumer situations. The only problem is, how many people would know how to do this? What services or software might be necessary to enable everyone to do this?
