Skater Nick Pourfard endured a skate injury that left him unable to walk for 6 months so he turned to music. As a skater he’s said that all of his boards hold a sentimental value so he decided to marry his two passions towards a new hobby: woodworking and voila.. Prisma Guitars!
“I continued this hobby in my wood shed for five years, using old and battered skate decks and turning them into multicolored electric guitars. Because skateboards go through abundant wear and tear, they become obsolete after they are broken or worn down. My goal was to find a new function for them. I graduated from college in May 2015 and have since launched Prisma Guitars, where all guitars are built using the wood from broken and used skateboards. Prisma Guitars are all 100% handmade and the colors are completely one-of-a-kind for every build.”
