Guitars inspired by passions
Musk Skateguitar is the result of our two passions: skateboarding and music. We thought that if we combined them we could achieve a fascinating project.
Why we use skates? We love them and they are made to be resistant to all type of blows or damages. Our guitars are made entirely of them having as a result a cool longer lasting guitar.
At first, guitars were made one by one but then we realized that we couldn't supply the demand we had. We started thinking about how to produce a guitar that could be built in the short term and that do not lose it's quality. As a result, we created two different models that are more accessible than the first guitars and could be made in a shorter period of time.
We have created two models of MUSK skateguitars specially designed to optimize the assembly time. That allows the skateguitars we produce to be more affordable.
Since we started experimenting with skateboards to build guitars we discovered many peculiarities in terms of their function and sound. Due to its shape and method of construction by layers of maple we obtained a structurally very resistant instrument with an excellent attack and brightness, which makes it ideal for all kinds of configurations. For this first edition we decided to use humbucker microphones equipped with Alnico V in the Bridge and Alnico II in the Neck, to obtain that characteristic sound that distinguishes MUSK skateguitars.
