The Skatar is a unique bass & guitar
made from a skateboard. It has two separate pickups for each set
of strings, bass and guitar. It is played (and sometimes ridden)
by Keith Irish of the Orange County, California punk band "Punk
as a Doornail" which mixes rock with the atonal avant-garde
by means of the skatar. It must be played with a Hennessey gin bottle.
Being a bass player, when asked to join the band as the guitarist,
he didn't have a guitar, but owned a skateboard, so the Skatar was
born, serving as both bass and guitar, as well as quick transportation
from the stage to the bar.
