This series of 14 “boutique” guitars is the result of a creative collaboration between musician/author Paul Schmidt and luthier Michael Spalt. Schmidt carefully selected an array of work by iconic Art Nouveau masters such as Emile Gallé, Alphonse Mucha, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Louis C. Tiffany. Spalt built the instruments using his knowledge of tone woods and acoustics, as well as a meticulous woodworking technique. Using his formula for clear resin tops and a body style inspired by luthier Steve Klein, Spalt incorporated the artistic elements chosen by Schmidt. The result is a collection of one-of-a-kind instruments that are as acoustically captivating as they are visually appealing.
