Skateboarding and rocking out go hand in hand, and now they literally can thanks to Buenos Aires-based Skate Guitar. The brain child of master luthier/old school skater Ezequiel Galasso and professional skateboarder/musician Gianfranco de Gennaro, Skate Guitars are handmade from two repurposed skate decks a piece. The duo embrace the scrappy nature of the used decks, noting that the 14 layers of pressed maple that make up a skate deck are rugged enough to withstand the hardest rocking out, without the musician having to worry about marring a pristine guitar. Skate Guitars, like skate decks, are designed to take abuse. Plus, they look and sound badass.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
