- New Condition
SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR!! The Art of Music and luthier/artist Michael Spalt release The Nouveau Series - a collection of thirteen of the most artful and exotic electric guitars in the history of the instrument. Original art by Louis Comfort Tiffany (Tiffany art glass), Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Alphonse Mucha, Lucien Pissaro, Emile Galle', and other historically significant artists of the Art Nouveau period have been incorporated into Spalt's unique collaged resin-topped bodies. In a special arrangement with Klein Acoustic Guitars (noted pioneering luthier Steve Klein) the bodies are shaped as Klein's unique acoustic guitar body silhouette, joined to handmade rosewood necks. In addition to the original Art Nouveau art, the collaged resin-topped bodies, Klein's eloquent body silhouette, and the exotic rosewood necks, the instruments feature custom-to-this series Fralin pickups with specially coloured bone tops, Klein acoustic-styled bridges, handmade tuner buttons, and a variety of other subtle thematically consistent aesthetic touches. Years of design, as well as careful and costly art selection precede the release of The Nouveau Series, enhancing its stature as one of the rarest and most artful collections of electric guitars ever offered. The instruments will be provided with custom-to-this series cases, along with a letter of provenance.
