    <delurk> Anyone have any experience with Spalt basses? I've been intrigued by them for a while now and would love to hear everyone's thoughts on them.

    I have also been intrigued by them, and happen to think they look very good (others definitely disagree).

    FWIW, here is a quote from the infamous Ed Roman on Spalt basses:

    "Plays Ok but the sound reminds me of an 80's Kramer Metal Neck Bass. I am not the least bit impressed.

    I got one traded in last year and pieces of the instrument actually delaminated and the whole thing was falling apart. I like Basses as an art form but this one carries the art form too far and falls short on durability and reliability. I try to keep several in stock at all times."
