Skateboard Guitars

Skateboard Guitars

Skateboard-Guitars Making guitars out of weird materials is not a new concept, but few of those weird material mashups end up look as good as these Skateboard Guitars from Buenos Aires artist Ezequiel Galasso and his company Skate Guitar. Ripped up, shredded skateboard decks painstakingly transformed from trash into musical treasure--and they sound good too! Unfortunately, we don't know much more about them then the fact that they look and sound great, but we still want one anyway.

A Visual Compendium of Guitars

A Visual Compendium of Guitars

Packing arenas and accruing a pool of groupies is a dream every young guy has at some point in his life. For most of us, the way to try and make that a reality is by picking up a guitar. Unfortunately, for all the fingertip calluses out there, very few realize that dream. A Visua...

Fabian Ciraolo Illustrations

Fabian Ciraolo Illustrations

Most art starts a conversation. It evokes the Cubist mentality, or the human condition or blah, blah, pretentious words, blah. Fabian Ciraolo's Illustrations are so impressive that they could be described in many of the same ways, but we like them because they're so f'ing coo...

Olaf Diegel 3D-Printed Guitars

Olaf Diegel 3D-Printed Guitars

Guitars are inherently cool. You can take the cool up a notch or two by getting a limited or special edition from one of the big manufacturers, or even by having your existing one customized. But you'll be hard-pressed to find one as cool looking as one of Olaf Diegel's 3D-Pr...

Sinuous Guitars

Sinuous Guitars

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it," would be a good summation of the history of guitar design. Whatever axe you choose to play today, won't be so dissimilar from the ones the Stones, Zeppelin (unless Jimmy Page brought up a double neck) and older legends carried out on stage with...

Form2 Touch-sensitive Guitar

Form2 Touch-sensitive Guitar

Restringing a guitar is like agreeing to watch kids that aren't yours. It's fun and exciting the first time, but each time after that it gets progressively worse until you dread each day it comes like a trip to the dentist. The Form2 Touch-sensitive Guitar does away with that ent...

Guitar Gear

Guitar Gear

There comes a point in every guy's life when he contemplates learning guitar. Often it stems from a belief that playing "Stairway to Heaven" will make panties fly off. Those who stick with it past the initial fingertip callouses usually end up dedicating a large portion of their ...

iTar iPad Guitar

iTar iPad Guitar

iPads are fantastic media consumption devices. Netflix, games and music are never more than a finger tap away from occupying you for hours at a time, but they've been much for media creation (email doesn't count as media). Until now that is. Pledge $200 or more to Starr Labs and ...

Voyage-Air Guitar

Voyage-Air Guitar

Despite its name, this is not some instructional air guitar video that will train you in the skills of shredding to some AC/DC in your tighty-whities on top of the bed. It is luckily something far, far better for the real guitar player out there. Normally traveling with your gui...

Aluminium Telecaster Electric Guitar

Aluminium Telecaster Electric Guitar

We like things inspired by winners.  That's why Air Jordan's sell like crazy but Air Brian Scalabrine's never quite made it off the cutting room floor.  Base something off a Mercedes Silver Arrow - even if it is as vastly different as a guitar - and we're already on-board.  Th...

Guitar Wall Light

Guitar Wall Light

Sometimes it's good to diversify your home furnishings from the traditional Ikea/Target gamut. A little decorating excitement doesn't have to come in the form of a stripper pole or a wet bar, though both of those in the right context (i.e., together) have their merits. No, we're ...

YouRock MIDI Electric Guitar

YouRock MIDI Electric Guitar

There's only one reason most guys pick up a guitar for the first time - to pickup chicks. The fame, fortune, and VH1 special are all great - but it's really all about the chicks. Flash to the present. When the groupie goggles fade, most of us are left with plastic instruments, ha...

Flipper Guitar Spatula

Flipper Guitar Spatula

Ever jam so hard that your guitar sizzled? (Sadly us neither, and we hear that's a requirement to even tryout for Tenacious D). But even if you can't crank out rockin' tunes you can at least turn up the heat with the Flipper Guitar Spatula. Made of pure rock 'n roll (and silicone...
