Necessity is the mother of invention. Let’s say you’re a young skateboard-loving teenager and you want a lap guitar to play some lonesome blues notes. Unfortunately, you’re a poor teenager and lap guitars are quite expensive. Not wanting to wait, you’re in dire need of a solution.

One enterprising young man found a most creative solution; making a lap guitar out of a skateboard deck. It is at once strange and cool looking, but also proves that sometimes all that’s stopping a solution from being found is creativity. In any case, it works the same as any lap guitar and is sure to be eye-catching for any who pass such a curious thing in the street.
