ArtGuitar Hidetoshi Shibata @300.000 yen
To reduce the cost for 3D printing, I shortened the size. Not only cost cutting, I put several ideas to increase usability. The bridge has a base to make it easy to set the steal bridge block. Screw heads are included for 3D printing (only the shapes, we need steal nut). Neck adjustment screw has been set with 15 degree angle to make it easy to turn a screw driver.
To make a head part light, I use less metal parts on the head. Then I drilled the head to make strings go through the holes. To make it tight, I put tiny rings in the holes, which may keep the tuning right.
I am making 3 guitars right now. These three necks are bought at Auction at less than 10 US$. I cut heads.
I am reusing old parts. This is an old neck. To make a headless guitar, I cut a head with saw by my hand. Cut surface is not bad. I grained with a file
I am building my original guitars for 6 years. I gradually decided design architecture for my guitar.
