Once again, Michael and Tania Spalt have graced us with some truly spectacular guitars. They are loaded with character and dripping with beautiful tone with each one possessing a level of touch response that makes them a pleasure to play. These guitars not only inspire you to play but they will inspire you to play beyond your peak. It does not get any better.
The gate to Spalt's new location in Vienna needed replacement. To Michael Spalt it looked like prime guitar-building material. Nice weathered Pine boards - resonant and light - with a wonderfully textured surface! So, Spalt is making guitars out of it. It is a limited series of 50 (the boards will yield just about enough wood), commemorating Spalt's move.
