A glimpse at the 3-day process of building an Outdoor Guitar™.
Composite polycarbonate parts are received by our injection molder in Everett, Washington. The parts are trimmed, cleaned, and the sound hole decals are installed. 3D printed strap buttons are installed using stainless steel screws and nylon locking nuts.
The glue joints are primed and heated to 300°F. A specialized cyanoacrylate adhesive is added to the glue joints and the parts are clamped in machined aluminum fixtures. The parts are allowed to cure for 24 hours.
Not shown in this video are the brass inserts that are installed in the neck. The neck is then attached to the body and the access holes capped with 3D printed caps. Tuning machines and strings are installed then tuned.
