Is it difficult for you to say bid adieu to your favorite skateboard when it gets old and beyond use? What if you can keep your old skateboard with yourself in the form of a cool electric guitar? Yes you heard me right!
The team of Luthier Ezequiel Galasso from Argentina and professional skateboarder Gianfranco de Gennaro Gilmour came with an idea of transforming old and broken skateboard decks into amazing electric guitars. Like this, Skate Guitars came into existence.
Each Skate Guitar is made from at least two recycled skateboard decks. The original look of the board is kept intact so one can see the scratches and beating it has been gone through.
Every single electric guitar is handmade by Galasso himself at the Galasso Guitars workshop in Buenos Aires. They have also built a special Skate Guitar for Pearl Jam which is made using 7 recycled skateboard decks.
