  • Skateboard guitars

    I just came across this article about an Argentinian luthier who refashions old skateboards into guitars. I have no idea how they sound, but they look pretty cool.

    And before anyone suggests it... yes, they've already slapped a Bigsby on one.

      Ah, my bad. I haven't been on here in a while and only bothered to check posts from the past few days (since that article was published). Should've used the search function, I guess...

      I just watched that video, though, and the tone was actually quite good -- much better than I was expecting.

      It's priced at $1000 plus shipping not bad. Might grab one in the near future just for the hell of it. http://www.facebook.com/galassoguitars

      Fear not, they've got a pile of albums.  Someday someone will dig them up and do a Surf Punks tribute band.
