Michael Spalt

As trained artist and having worked as special effects maker, Michael's approach to guitar making is rather omnivorous - he combines various technical and aesthetic approaches into his creations, creating singular tools designed to please the ear and eye, and to entice the musician to pick them up and to enchant and inspire the player with their feel and tone. 

"In my work I look for things that have a history, incorporating and repurposing discarded objects and materials and with that giving them a new life.  It is an honor to be asked to work with this material, so full of history and meaning.  I am excited to be part of this project."
