Rockin’ Design Patent – Chemistry Design Werks LLC’s “Adjustable Guitar Pedalboard”


Figure 1 of this design patent “is a top view of an adjustable guitar pedalboard in a semi-expanded configuration”

  • Rockin’ (Design) Patent: US Design Patent No. D769,364
  • Filed: 5 October 2015
  • In the name of: Chemistry Design Werks LLC
  • Title: Adjustable Guitar Pedalboard
  • What’s claimed: “The ornamental design for an adjustable guitar pedalboard, as shown and described.”
  • Why this (design) patent rocks:
    • Unlike utility patents, design patents (also called “registered designs”) protect the way all or part of a product looks rather than how it works. This is why the claim here refers to the “ornamental design” for an adjustable guitar pedalboard “as shown”.
    • It appears that this design relates to one of the Holeyboard pedalboards from Chemistry Design Werks LLC – see here.
    • Here’s a video of a Holeyboard in action:
