Prisma Guitars | Transforming Skateboard Decks into Custom Guitars

  |  Jeff Straw  |  

We sit with Nick Pourfard founder of Prisma Guitars for this two part look at his unique custom guitar building. 

Part 1: The Interview

Combining a lifelong love of skateboarding with a passion for woodworking and guitars, the creation of Prisma seemed a natural fit for Nick.  In our interview we dig into how he came up with the idea in the first place, pickup choices, body styles, the unique nature of each guitar and so much more. 


Part 2: Guitar Demo

Here Pyramind's Bryan Dale showcases the tones that each of these two handmade guitars create.  The first is a surf inspired guitar featuring a single coil in the neck with a humbucker bridge pickup.  The second guitar has a set of P-90s on it.  Walk through the three different pickup positions. After a lovely clean tour of the tones Bryan gets a little dirty and kicks in some overdrive.  Moving back to the humbucker for some chunky riffs... The Mesa amp was really begging to be pushed so we push her a bit and see what this Prisma sounds like going full bore.

Moral of the story, Nick has really made some absolutely stunning sounding and looking guitars.
