Praxis Guitars uses digital fabrication technology & traditional craftsmanship to create affordable custom instruments. The use of computers to control carving tools has been popular in the world of instrument building for many decades; we affirm that by building our own machines, and sharing design files, we can dramatically reduce the cost of customized instruments, and create a positive sum in the realm of human art.
Praxis Guitars creates open source musical instruments by encouraging other makers to modify & sell copies of our instruments. By sharing the digital design, the product becomes more valuable than a similar product held behind the curtain of proprietary secrets. The ethos of Praxis Guitars is to enable musicians to become an active part of ongoing instrument designs & production.
The instruments we create are licensed under Creative Commons Share Alike Attribution licensing. The licensing allows for commercial replication & modification as long as the original design is properly attributed, and derivatives are given the same license.
