'My dream is to build cool electric guitars'

AFTER I have graduated from school what I would really love to do is go to a good university to study product design or electrical engineering, and spend the rest of my life designing and building electric guitars.

Last year, for my MYP Personal Project, I took on the challenge of building my own electric guitar. It took a lot of time and effort, but in the end I was successful. My biggest inspiration was Les Paul, a pioneer in the guitar industry, credited for the invention of the electric guitar.

I would love to design a guitar that changes the world, similar the invention of Les Paul, aptly named the Gibson Les Paul, that affected modern society. Today, they are the world's most recognized, sought-after guitars.

It would be incredible to be able to create my own guitar design, use innovative technology in the electrical layout, and then sell the design to a major guitar company such as Gibson or Fender, who sponsor guitars for some of the biggest names in the music industry. To see a rock 'n' roll icon like Slash or Jimmy Page shredding out a solo on one of my guitars would be a dream come true.
