Hand carved versus automated carved guitar body top

Pillar has been working on a project to develop a production process of creating a  flexible highly detailed custom guitar body tops at a cost and time effective manner. Art like carved top have always been and still is an amazing art form. But it is a very labor intensive and costly process to do. What if there was a process that could give you the artist type of  value and quality with out the labor and time vested? This unique process allows for as similar up sell like customized cell phone covers but applied to musical instruments. Optimizing and defining product development process has been the most difficult piece to the puzzle. We are working with local machine and prototype shops to push the boundaries and technology to develop this process and make it a viable business plan.
