How cool are these guitars?! The Mada series of semi-acoustic electric guitars and bass are handcrafted from hemp.
Developed by Adam Wehsely-Swiczinsky, the body consists of a material called Hempstone®, which is 100% hemp fiber. Hemp was chosen because it optimizes the resonance, adapts to the shape of the player, and circumvents the use of wood cut down from the rainforest.
Willie Nelson, a longtime supporter of hemp, played the Mada guitar for the Sustainable Biodiesel Alliance at Hard Rock Cafe Times Square.
