Not quite your grandfather’s hollow body guitar, Massey University professor Olaf Diegel creates awe-inspiring 3D printed guitar bodies with intricate scenes embedded within their open air design. Diegel uses a EOS Formiga P100 selective laser sintering machine to achieve the incredible level of detail in his designs, the latest of which are Scarab and Spider. [via Technabob]
