 *SPALT TOTEM-X.2, NEW, Like the original series, the TOTEM-X.2 puts 
       the emphasis squarely on the musical instrument aspect; it is a
       solid and straight-forward guitar, without compromises when it
       comes to the craft and the instrument quality. It fulfills 
       every expectation one might have of a superior sounding instrument. 
        This series will be limited to 10 instruments.
      Prime tone wood bodies are topped with Michaelís artistic collages
      made from reclaimed woods. During the making of any guitar quite 
      a bit of wood remnants are created, which generally find their way
      into the trash or become firewood. Michael collects these pieces 
      and uses them for his 3-D collages. Different colours and textures
      combine into unique pieces, each body a canvas for his art.  It 
      would not be Michael if he did not infuse even his most production-oriented 
      instruments with his unique signature art.
   TOTEM-X.2 are individually handmade in our workshop Austria; and same as 
      the original series, they also use reclaimed wood for the tops. 
      The Totem-X.2 series has an Alder body with a Maple neck, a 25 Ĺ" scale
      Indian Rosewood fingerboard and is fitted with a TV Jones Powertron 
      in the neck and a Lindy Fralin HO humbucker (splittable) in the bridge.
      Gotoh vintage style tuners, a Hipshot fixed bridge and Dunlop Straplocks
      complete the package....$4500

 *FENDER Stratocaster, 1965, Lake Placid Blue, MAPLE NECK, 
      This is a very rare variant, having a December '64 neck date 
  stamp with a Maple cap, albeit refretted and with the board having 
  been oversprayed. The peghead has not been oversprayed and has the 
  original Stratocaster decal, and it's a Jazzmaster style neck with
  the larger peghead. (!!) The Maple cap has the staple holes which
  readily identify it as real.  The code before the neck date
  (looking for a 2 for Strat) is ambiguous.  Was it a 4 (for Jazzmaster)
  that Fender adjusted?  Hard to say but there are micro bits of blue
  stuck to the heel that would signify it's being the original neck
  for this guitar.  The pots are dated 1965.  The finish has  aged
  and greened somewhat especially when compared to the vivid Blue
  under the white guard.  The block has the arm broken off inside 
  so we just slapped a replacement block on for now.  It lived thru
  the '70s and thus had big brass saddles installed so we put some
  re-issue saddles on for now- we will get some real ones for it. 
 It also had the nicest copper foil shielding job we've ever seen-
  it was a shame we removed it but it did not leave any residue or
  changes to the routing. There were replacement tuners on it that
  have now been replaced with original double line Klusons.  It has
  a second string tree.
   The pickups appear untouched with the old masking tape still
  clinching the lead wires.  It does have a 5-way switch now thus 
  there was some soldering because of that.
   The current owner bought it from an acquaintance in 1981-82, 
  and that person bought it from the original owner in about '72 out 
  of a local Want Ad Classifieds and he was the one who had the frets 
  redone by Vinnie Fodera.  It has an original case, it plays and
  sounds great.  There have been a couple other maple necked Fenders 
  from '64-'65 sighted, but extremely rare, vgc........$39,000

                              Before  After ..... 
                We often get asked  "where do these guitars come from" ??? or "who buys these things" ??
                So here's an interesting picture of the quite rare White ES-345 (that we had for sale for about a year)
                with both it's original ( c. 1964), and current (April'06)  owners.

  Some have complained about bad pictures.  If this is happening to you or your PC, let me know.  We have Macs 
  and the pictures are large and clear, so we'd like to know figure out why this problem is happening
An answer from my brother Rick-
By default, Internet Explorer will shrink pictures to fit onto one screen.
That's probably what people are complaining about. Usually, if they hold the
cursor over the picture for a few seconds, a button will appear and they can
click it to restore the pic to full size. I hate the feature, so I just turn
it off and always see the photos full-size:

From the IE menu bar, click Tools | Internet Options
Click the Advanced tab
Scroll down to the Multimedia section
Remove the check from "Enable Automatic Image Resizing"
Click OK to save settings

       For you who don't know, we do all manner of guitar repair and restoration.  We do most of it here but 
      also give some work to Dom Ramos -repairing and building since working in Dan Armstrong's shop in 
      the '60s.  We've also been a Martin Warrantee Center since 1985 before Martin closed down all 5 NJ Centers 
      because of a tax dispute between NJ and Martin

           DON'T SCROLL DOWN -    Feelings below

  Political sentiments
Turn back before it's too late!

A friend wrote this. I take no credit, but it's  food for thought.
"I'm not asking anyone to take my side, or the side of Israel, but I am asking you to think critically about the news you get from CNN and the BBC and AlJazeera or whatever station you watch
If we were colonizers, we would be actively planning wars, and TAKING land, not giving it away for PEACE. ( SINAI, Lebanon, Gaza strip...all relinquished, after being won, fairly, in a war, which we did not start. And yet still given away, in the promise of PEACE, which we have not gotten in return)
If we were committing genocide, then the population of Gaza and the West Bank would not have GROWN since 1967, but rather gotten smaller..no? Arabs in Gaza and the West Bank 1967: less than 1 million. Arabs in those areas today: 5 million) 
That is not GENOCIDE! You cannot have 500% population growth in a genocide. 
The definition of genocide is: 
" The deliberate killing of a large number of people from a particular nation or ethnic group with the aim of destroying that nation or group"
Does it look like we've destroyed anyone or are aiming to? 
Point of fact, we do not engage unless engaged with. And even then, our engagements are military, warnings in advance to clear the area and no civilian engagement whenever possible. 
Which brings me to the next part: 
War Crimes. Do you see in Israel rocket launchers on residential streets, missiles hidden under hospitals and schools (yes, even UNWRA schools got in on the deal)? Do you see 5 year old martyrs with hand grenades, and children trained with automatic weapons, and calls to behead all arabs, wherever we can find them? No, you do not. 
That is what our army faces against daily. And our CIVILIAN population is faced with daily, hourly....the WAR CRIMES of HAMAS and the Palestinian Authority. 
If we wanted to flatten all of Gaza and turn it into a parking lot, we have the weapon power to do it in 3 minutes. Why in the world do you think we haven't? After 10,000's of rockets and missiles have been fired indiscriminately at our cities and schools and homes, after Israelis have been killed and maimed and attacked....the reason is because we value HUMAN LIFE. Because we are trying to save the lives of the people of Gaza and the West Bank. We introduced water and power infrastructure to their villages. Before Israel, they had none. 
Next, the claims that Gaza is an open air prison, or a death camp etc. Ask yourself, how poor Gaza, that the BBC and NYT likes to claim is cut off from the world, and has no access to supplies...can import or import the materials to make thousands of rockets and missiles and rocket launchers --but can't import food, or medicine? Ask yourself where all of the cement and supplies to build schools and hospitals went...when instead there are hundreds of miles of cement and steel reinforced underground terror tunnels built every year. 
Finally, ask yourself how the leaders and government of poor Gaza have enough money to have a Billionaires Gaza Yacht Club with multi-million dollar yachts, and facilities, luxurious 5 star hotels, shopping malls filled with Gucci and Chanel and Polo shirts -- while their people literally starve and beg for help. 
And that is the main point. Israel does not govern GAZA. Israel is not in GAZA. Israel does not control GAZA. Gaza controls GAZA. So whatever the War Crime is for shelling your own population (430 rockets fired from Gaza at Israel have actually fallen within Gaza hurting and killing their own people), for putting rockets and missiles under their homes, for stealing their food and international aid -- you should know who to blame. The same Gazan leadership the Free Palestine movement funds and supports.
And now, think again critically about this situation. Do you honestly think that "Free-ing Palestine", and turning Israel over to these same folks that currently run GAZA or Ramallah so well is the solution to anything? Will provide more food or medicine or opportunity or freedom to ANYONE? Free Palestine hangs gay men from the tops of buildings and drags their bodies through the streets. Free Palestine supports honor killings of young women who have been raped or abused or shamed. Free Palestine calls for the elimination of all Jews. Free Palestine is in reality, nothing more than a thuggish, brutal, facist military regime, dressed up like a woke, liberal western project with nice slogans and catchy protest tunes. 
Like with most things, just follow the money and see what Free Palestine is really all about before lending your voice or your funds or support. 
Again, you don't have to wave an Israeli flag from your flagpole, but if you care about justice, real justice, and peace, freedom and security, think critically about the information you receive and then ask yourself what rings true."
