Meet Nick Pourfard, a 22-year-old artist, musician, and an avid skateboarder. Nick decided to combine his multiple talents and create one thing that is pure epic! Guitars that are built from reclaimed skateboard decks. The artist who is based in San Francisco and is an industrial design student taught himself woodworking for this project, each instrument is 100% handmade and composed of skateboards that have been used or broken. He calls this project ” Prisma Guitars “

Recently Pourfard has the honor to design and builds a piece for Steve Harris of Iron Maiden. ” 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 the homage to his classic original bass. ”

You can also donate your own board to be used in one of his next guitars. More Info: prismaguitars.com
