    I was excited until I saw the disclaimer at the end that stated "can no play this guitar".

    Detective: What do we have?
    Officer: Male. Early 30`s. Looks like he was bludgeoned to death with this metal guitar.
    Detective: You could say...*puts on sunglasses*...he was into heavy metal.

    That`s a huge amount of machining to make just one guitar.

    You could play it, of course, but it would sound like sh*t as the body is just a hunk of steel.

    or is it Aluminum? Looks like steel...

    Fender made an aluminum guitar and, aside from the weight, the thing sounds amazing. Very playable and fantastic tone.

    On the question of could you play it or not, at 3:20 or so in the lower left they even say cannot play this guitar. Im sure the metal guitars you buy from the stores work fine this one is just for looks.

    Ugly guitar is ugly.

    Amazing work went into programming and manufacturing. But, I still wouldn`t want to play it. But then, as patchouly has pointed out twice now, it`s not meant to be played, anyway. Not a fan of the body style, either.

    Art without substance is dead.

    define:robot - 1. A machine capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically.

    this is complex
    the machine is doing it automatically (sans constant human input)
    this is a robot

    What the hell is wrong with you people? It`s a technical demonstration showing off the ability of the MACHINE. Who cares if you can`t play the guitar?

    Who cares about the damn guitar? Seriously, this video isn`t about the guitar, it`s about the machine being able to design the parts, features, and overall look of the guitar quickly and precisely.

    Besides, I`m pretty sure the only reason you couldn`t play it is because it doesn`t have the guts built into it. They could easily use this process to make a working guitar body. They just didn`t since this was only supposed to be a demo.

    "I`m pretty sure the only reason you couldn`t play it is because it doesn`t have the guts built into it."

    it did have "guts" and it`s a fully functional guitar.. but that`s not the point as said before.. that`s a very very cool machine..

    also.. this is how most guitars are made anyway, wood / metal and some plastics (most wooden body vinyl coated)

    I wouldnt want to play that guitar. The fret boards` edges would probably be sharp. Cut your fingers on it...

    That, and, well, it doesnt look like a quality guitar.

    @saskuel
    nah the probably programed it to put a round on all the edges. thats what that cut that didnt look like it did anything was. Its probabaly just a window item to say "we can do this stuff!" lol
    But actually I would say thats a robot.. a CNC doesnt change tools on its own, not that i`ve ever seen.
