A while back I posted about a physics professor in New Zealand that had built some unique guitars using 3D printing technology. In the post I ask the question, “do guitarist suffer from cenophobia, or the fear of new ideas and things?“. In reality the vast majority of guitars being sold are based on designs and technology from over 50 years ago, personally I am OK with this. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
Recently there was a new article on these guitars which included a video featuring the guitar being played. I say this at the risk of sounding like an old school guitar snob, I thought it sounded like a toy. It had no character or soul to it’s tone, even if it did I don’t know if I could get past its appearance. “My name is Matt and I have cenophobia.”
