Skateboard Guitar – Burls Art does it again!

Burls Art has just built an electric guitar from 14 old skateboard decks.

Made from 14 old skateboard decks, this latest guitar build by online guitar builder Burls Art is the latest in a long line of instruments; all made out of weird things you wouldn’t normally associate with guitar making!

Skateboard Guitar

What happens when you take 14 old skateboard decks, rip off the old grip tape, remove all the stickers/graphics, cover them in epoxy resin, and leave them under a load of car jacks, which exert tonnes of pressure?

Multi-Coloured Maple Ply

You end up with a huge block of multi-coloured maple ply, which is perfect for building an electric guitar. Burls Art takes you through this whole process in his video below, and it is a great watch.

The neck is made using the same construction methods as the main body

Check the neck!

I love how he hand draws on the guitar body design, following the curves of all the skateboard deck layers. Those lines and layers give the guitar an almost boiled sweet look and remind me of something that could come from Willy Wonka’s mind!

This guitar’s neck is also made using the same process, and so the coloured stripes run the length of the neck, creating a really cool-looking fretboard.

What’s Next?

Burls Art has previously built guitars from coloured pencils, foam board, Himalayan rock salt, coffee beans and jawbreakers! His YouTube channel, Instagram, and website are all well worth a look at, so sign up and watch as he creates more weird and beautiful guitars in the future.
