The Spalt Instruments Hybrids embody Michael’s sculptural approach to guitar/bass building and they are stripped-down to the ergonomic essentials. The Hybrid line celebrates the organic shapes and textures of the wood, the fluid reflections on the polished aluminum surfaces, the interplay between hard and soft, warm and cold.
Hybrids employ an aluminum skeletal structure with wooden wings and wood necks, which dial in the tonal color and are comfortable to play. The aluminum core imparts a warm tone and clarity to the sound. All metal and wood work is done by hand as with all of Michael’s instruments, and each guitar or bass is built on order to the customer’s specifications.
Hybrids models are: Matrix (guitar), Apex (4-string bass), Terminator (5-string bass) and in various custom shapes and specifications.
