Shark bass guitar

 

Furniture, architecture maquettes, models, molds, lamps, boxes, panels, structures and much more has been digitally fabricated before, but how about the precision and the delicate balance of a musical instrument?

In order to face the challenge of this (ongoing) project, I took care of the machining of three phases (foam, wood test and final wood) and of the design of some of the assembling details.

 

The bass will be presented at the Fab 8 conference that will be hold in the summer of 2012 in New Zeeland.
