Spalt Instruments G 1509 Broken Nation

Item: SPAG1509

Michael Spalt is a true Artisan, an expert luthier and a visionary artist. Spalt Instruments represent Michael’s combined talents in one format, the electric guitar. Back in 1999, Michael created the “Flaguitar” series of Spalt Instruments using an old 1940s, 48 star American flag he found in a thrift shop. The series was finished in 2000 with a total of 13 instruments for the entire world.

Last year, 2016, Michael found enough remnant pieces from the 40s flag to create this new masterpiece, Broken Nation. To see this instrument in person is breathtaking as the pieces of flag are suspended in resin. There are different layers that give the visual a real sense of 3D, it’s beautiful and unique, like everything from Spalt Instruments. The carves on the back of the body demand your eye’s attention, tempting your fingers to glide along its smooth slopes, and will put you in awe of Michael’s masterful craftsmanship. The entire guitar is a piece of art both visually, and physically. The neck features a full bodied “C” shape that feels big, and in a good way, it gives you something to grab on to when this instrument takes you on a creative ride.

With inspiring tone, the Spalt G 1509 Broken Nation delivers everything from fat, overdriven “deep South” blues, to sparking neck pickup cleans, to coil tapped twangy bridge blissfulness. And, if you’re the type of player who fiddles with volume and tone controls, you’ll be delighted with this instruments versatility. As if it were built for songwriters, this instrument will inspire you to play in new ways and explore new musical avenues. Pick this one up today. - Scott
