Stumbled upon this Surf Punks video "Bigtop" - check out the skateboard guitar - and for some reason thought of the Cribs and "Men's Needs" - enjoy

"My Beach" is cool but the chick in "Big Top" takes the cake.

Read several articles now on those SKTGTRs but none mention how they make the necks.

I wonder what the back looks like - there must be a box or something on the backside to give it the depth needed for pots wiring neck stability etc - I have not seen a picture of the back of the body on these.

Says in the article:
Quote:
Most of the guitars are built from at least two used skateboard decks that are combined to complete the wood body of the instrument.
