Michael Spalt Resin Top / Totem Guitar Big W Resin Top / Mahogany
Used! Michael Spalt Resin Top "BIG W"- Beautiful hand-made, boutique electric guitar. Resintop / Mahogany construction

Michael Spalt Guitars Resintop Totel

Used! Boutique Electric Guitar!

Hand-made!

Resin Top w/ Embedded Art!

This guitar is featured on the Spalt Instruments website

Used! Just in on consignment from one of our regular customers. This Michael Spalt Instruments Resin Top / Totel is in excellent shape without any serious issues, dings, dents, repairs, etc... It's hand made and has a "crafty-quality" to it, but is very cool with it's Resin Top that is impregnated with different numbers and letters. Collector owned and cared for. Never gigged or heavily used. Like all our used / vintage gear it has been tested for functionality and priced to move. Sold as-is. What you see is what you get.

This guitar has a Mahogany body with Maple center and Wenge stringers. The neck is Birdseye Maple with what appears to be a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard. The scale is 25.5" and the neck pickup is a Gibson Mini humbucker. I do not know which brand of Tele pickup is in the bridge position.

Totem / Resintop           

Straddling the line between art and utility, Michal Spalt Guitars embrace both aspects fully. Although visual and sculptural elements play an obvious role, the basic approach common to these guitars as musical instruments is playability, tone and reliability.

The "ResinTop" is a unique process marrying a tonewood back with a clear resin coating on the top into which decorations and inclusions can be applied.  After experimenting with various types of resin, this process was developed by Michael Spalt to assemble objects and assorted bric-a-brac into a homogenous guitar body.  The resin is formulated to accommodate the thermal expansion and contraction of the wood and it is sonically transparent.

The wood used for the back supplies the basic tonal characteristics and structural stability of the guitars while the wood choices for the neck allow the color of the sound to be dialed in. The resin adds sustain and its tonal effect is similar to a "Maple cap over Mahogany body" effect - sparkle and transparency in the upper frequency ranges.  As with a conventional guitar, the choice of hardware and pickups also plays a large role in determining the sound of the instrument

Each guitar is a unique instrument, both tonally and aesthetically. This one is referred to as the “Big W”. Other than the top, there are several numbers on the guitar- The neck plate is stamped G0407 and the headstock 0406001M
