Global engineering company Sandvik, main sponsor of Engineers Without Borders in Sweden, recently presented the world’s first smash-proof guitar.
The guitar was part of a project to demonstrate how Sandvik could use their sustainable, cutting-edge techniques to make something that is both highly precise and amazingly durable.
In a short film, guitar virtuoso and notorious guitar smasher Yngwie Malmsteen was then challenged to destroy the unique, 3D printed all-metal guitar during a live show in Miami. The guitar stood the test.
Since the project was launched on April 9, the guitar has evoked massive global interest, resulting in hundreds of articles and millions of views. Now, Sandvik announces the guitar, played and signed by Malmsteen, will be auctioned on the music site Reverb.com starting on May 2.

Sandvik has decided that the funds from this auction will be donated to Engineers Without Borders Sweden.
