Spalt Instruments “Glass Flower Garden” NAMM 2018

Sold

"As much as I enjoy making a "traditional" instrument out of the finest "tonewoods", I also love making instruments which push the boundaries and open new possibilities to musicians willing to explore and expand the scope of their music. The influences manifested in the Totemguitar line, to date close to 400 instruments, go back to Dada, Surrealism, collage and assemblage art, Pop art, and sometimes a more conceptual approach, along with the occasional dose of pure kitsch." - Michael Spalt

We were thrilled to grab this incredibly intricate and unique guitar from Michael Spalt at the 2018 NAMM show.  As one of the foremost examples of his incomparable artistry, there is simply so much going with this guitar.  The central theme of this particular instrument is of a child's wandering through the strange and mysterious "Glass Flower Garden."  There are countless unique design elements here, but one of our favorites is the pickup cover which is made from a vintage hair-clip.  This guitar features a magnetic pickup which is capable of being blended with a piezo with different voicing via a push-pull.  The body of the instrument is elegantly contoured and feels incredibly sleek and wonderful to play.  We hope to have more of Michael's terrifically unique creations throughout the year so please don't hesitate to reach out to us for more information as to what we have coming.
