The RP Guitar is manufactured in one piece using additive 3D fabrication which is also known as Rapid Prototyping or 3D Printing. The main body is made from a polycarbonate polymer and the central core is CNC machined wood which still allows for excellent tonal properties.

Says Manson, "Due to the nature of its manufacturing process individual tendons can be turned on and off before manufacture which means every single body will be unique."
