Illinois Family Creates Back To The Future Themed Guitar
A guitar designed by a father and son duo in Illinois was inspired by the movie, "Back To The Future."
Not only am I a big fan of Rock music, the guitar is my favorite instrument. I tried learning how to play, but I didn't quite have the skill. Living in Rockford has its advantages being an "Axe" man. One of the best of all-time lives in Rockford. That's Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick. Plus, he owns an incredible collection. I think this model is one he needs to add to his arsenal.
According to dailyherald.com,
"Now the 61-year-old certified public accountant from Wheaton has gone back in time to his musical roots with his newest creation -- a "Back to the Future"-inspired guitar with a flux capacitor and a digital light display showing the year."
"Steve Doner and his 24-year-old son, Richard, an electrical engineer who lives in Vernon Hills and works for Abbott, started fiddling around with guitars in 2008 after the son got a guitar and the dad picked up a bass guitar. They eventually created Doner Designs, a part-time charity that builds unique guitars to raise money for worthy causes."
You have to admit, that's pretty darn cool.
