Preowned Michael Spalt Gate Custom #025 “Vienna Style”


Here is a pre-owned Michael Spalt Gate Custom, ser#025. The body shape is based on a template Michael Spalt’s friend/luthier Andreas Neubauer of Vienna salvaged from an old local luthier’s shop, ca. 1870’s. The body is hollow except for a block under the tailpiece, with an inset top of old pine (from the old gate to our new shop), finished with a resin coat. This series of Spalt guitars are called the “Vienna style”. The graceful curves and the handrubbed finish are reminiscent of the well-worn Viennese coffe house chairs. Direct and dynamic with a nice touch of transparency in the tone. The neck is tightly fastened with a 3-bolt machine screw system, ensuring stability and good sustain. Pickups are BoneTop P90s with a push/pull knob for series mode. Includes hardshell case.
