3D Printed Electric Guitar Body

I did my first test print of the electric guitar body today.  It took about 15 hours at 10% infill; a real print will take at least 24 hours.  Remember that the Trinity Labs Aluminatus has a 12″x12″ print bed when you’re looking at the pictures. Bridge is a “Bondy” bridge that I made myself, in my machine shop; neck is a Moses graphite neck. There are a few defects around the edges of the face of the part, due to the sparse infill: with more dense infill, and perhaps a few more top layers, that should be better in the final print.  Still, a finished guitar body in under a day?  Quite cool!
