Beautiful Handmade Guitars Made From Broken Skateboards
These incredibly beautiful handmade guitars made from broken skateboards are so cool, so unique, they will make you start taking guitar lessons asap. It’s just one of those amazing stories where someone actually makes a living by following his passions.
In this case, Nick Pourfard from San Francisco, who is a skateboarder and guitarist, managed to combine his two passions and turn them into one amazing career. He found a way to make the most out of every situation, so with every broken skateboard, a new handmade guitar is born.
His project is called ‘Prisma Guitars’, and by accessing the website, you can get your hands on these beautiful handmade guitars made from broken skateboards. All the pieces that form a new guitar come from broken or used up skateboards. The only exceptions are the strings, pick-ups and electronics.
These guitars really stand out of the crowd. Nick started getting more and more requests and questions about his work. Soon after, he even designed a custom handmade guitar for Steve Harris from Iron Maiden. It really doesn’t get much better than this…
When talking about the handmade guitar he made for Steve Harris, Nick said: “I took every detail of his playing style and aesthetic into consideration. The bass has an off-white painted alder back with skate top featuring colors as close to West Ham as possible. I laser cut a custom mirror pickguard and bound the whole body in black and white to pay homage to his classic original bass.”
