Fretboard Journal x Mountain Gazette

Not so long ago we caught wind of a man, ney, a legend who dared to combine the shred of a ski with the musical power of an electric guitar. That man's name? Britton Bonella. 

Britton crafted us the skitar you see here and once we had it in our hands, we knew we had to team up with our new new friends at Fretboard Journal to release it into the wild. 

Fretboard publishes a a keepsake print magazine dedicated to the wild, weird and wonderful from the world of fretted instruments. It's reader supported, written with depth and conviction, and full of stunning photography. 

They're the perfect fit.

So here we are, giving one lucky human a chance to take home a 1-of-1 electric skitar made from vintage skis and these components:

  • Hipshots locking tuners
  • Power Rail Humbucker pickup
  • Puretone input jack

This is a one-of-a-kind fretted instrument, and if you're lucky and you could take it home. Enter above for a chance to win.
