Smash-proof, all-metal guitar

Published:  03 October, 2019

Global engineering group SANDVIK has announced it will showcase its cutting-edge 3D-printed stainless steel guitar at the upcoming Engineering Design Show on 16 October 2019 in Coventry.

The innovative instrument was engineered collaboratively by highly skilled specialists from Sandvik Machining Solutions, Sandvik Coromant and Sandvik Materials Technology, who employed the latest techniques in additive manufacturing and metallurgy to deliver both high precision and extreme durability.

Swedish rock legend Yngwie Malmsteen has put the guitar through its paces, first by playing his trademark tunes and then – in true rockstar style – attempting to smash it.

Experts from Sandvik will take to the stage at Engineering Design Show 2019 to share the secrets in a presentation entitled ‘Designing the Unbreakable Guitar’.
