Ok...I know what some of you are thinking, nut no worries, your safe - Well, maybe. The melting point of ABS is is around 220 degrees. So the sun is safe, but I wouldn't do any barbecuing, at least with the kids around. Or be around clever geeks with magnifying glasses.
Wanna 'Bring the Noise!' with some old school thrash metal - Maybe call your new band Thrash Plastic? Check out this beast from ODD Guitars The body is a spider based 3D printed design with a maple neck. Pure awesome.
