Sandvik, a world leader in material innovation and manufacturing, says it created the smash-proof guitar by gathering together its engineers to collaborate and use sustainable, cutting-edge techniques to make something both highly precise and extremely durable.

“This guitar is a beast! Sandvik is obviously on top of their game. They put the work in, they do their hours, I can relate to that,” said Malmsteen.
