    I like a lot of the stuff from Spalt Instruments. It's hard to pick "The Most" beautiful.

    I completely agree. That Artist was a rare bird. Light with a spruce top, immacculately constructed. Lots of abalone. I flipped it at a big profit but have always regretted it.

    I ran into this beauty a few days ago nurturing my gas and thought briefly about buying. I'm glad someone pulled the trigger before I talked myself into it.

    Not maybe the prettiest guitars. However I own them and think they are unique in their own. The first is my beloved late 90's epi flamecat and it plays and sounds buetiful. The 2nd and 3rd are builds. 20210625_155912.jpg 20210625_155912.jpg 20210625_160112.jpg

    This one belonged to a friend of mine. I never met him, but we go way back.
