Eagle Electric guitar by David Flores Loredo

Home > Winners > #55677


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Eagle

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Electric guitar

INSPIRATION:
The design of the main electric guitar icons design has remained almost unaltered since the 60s till today. In addition, they have usually been very heavy, in terms of weight. The Eagle presents a lightweight, futuristic and sculptural design with a completely new design language, inspired by the Streamline and the Organic design philosophies. Form and function united in a whole entity with balanced proportions, interweaved volumes and elegant lines with sense of flow and speed.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
New concept based on a futuristic and organic-streamlined design language. Probably one of the most lightweight electric guitars in the market. Very comfortable to play, with a powerful and versatile sound born from a state-of-the-art pickup system, a precise manufacturing and a careful selection of high quality woods and components.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Just plug it to a nice amplifier and enjoy.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in January 2016 and finished in February 2017. It has been developed between Gijon and Madrid, Spain.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The design started from concept sketches on a blank paper and continued with Photoshop, Solidworks CAD modeling, rendering and the fabrication with a CNC machine. Finally it has been manually painted, polished and adjusted.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Weight: 2,7Kg. Body material: Alder. Body finish: Gloss Polyurethane. Neck material: Maple. Neck Finish: Bright Gloss Urethane. Scale Length: 25.5". Pickups: 3 active noiseless single-coils EMG SA with Alnico bar magnet. Pickup Selector: 5 way switch. Controls : Volume and two tone pots. Bridge: Schaller Roller Chromed. Tuning Machines: Kluson 6L Chromed.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
This project implied a deep research in the electric guitar engineering techniques in order to obtain a high quality standards in sound, ergonomics and playability. Likewise, my previous experience developing organic porcelain lamps inspired by nature voronoi patterns, made me internalize the organic beauty of their shapes and apply them to this guitar. Finally, I studied in depth many of the main Streamline artworks to project their fascinating sense of flow and speed to this design.

CHALLENGE:
The main challenge was to achieve a really new, attractive and lightweight design. It required a continuous effort to maintain an accurate balance between all its aesthetic characteristics in order to obtain a proportioned and elegant body but at the same time futuristic, innovative and defiant. The challenge continued to the final engineering with the integration of all the components into small spaces and the adaptation to the real ergonomics without reducing the beauty of the initial design.
