    Thanks for the link. Great article. I really like his new Steelcaster Deluxe finished in vintage butterscotch like a '52 Tele. The Steelphonic is mesmerizing also.

    I've lusted for a Trussart for years. One of these days, I'll get a Steelphonic in my hands. :)

    Amazing how long recognition can take.....

    I still have one of his early builds way back from his early days in Paris, when the Steel Deville was a tele, not a LP,.... and before the relic treatment was a standard thing. Also have one of his more recent builds. Both are stellar instruments, and don't sound like you would think for a metal body. You'd be hard pressed to tell it was not a wooden guitar. It really twists your mind up trying to resolve that with the obvious differences in wood bodied guitars.
