made entirely by hand in a buenos aires workshop, argentinian luthier ezequiel galasso and pro skateboarder gianfranco
de gennaro gilmour have collaborated to develop electric ‘skate guitars’ from reclaimed skateboard decks. both the body
and neck are constructed with layered maple – with models equipped with features such as single volume knobs, whammy
bars and humbucking pickups.
