First of all, wlecome back to TGP. Thanks for all of the hard work to all of those who got it up and running! I got my Steel Caster about a week ago. Rusty, solid top, holey back. I was some what doubtful of these guitars at first. How good can a steel hollow body sound anyway? No wood! Curiousity got the better of me and I am glad that it did. Not only is the guitar a work of art, it plays great. Just for fun I swapped out the stock pups (sound good in their own right) for a pair of custom wound Lollars for GVCG. They took the guitar to the next level. This guitar has one of the thickest tele sounds that I have ever heard. Great sustain and tone. Not at all metalic. No problem with feedback even at rather high levels of volume and fuzz. If you have ever wondered about the Trussarts I suggest that you try one. You won't be disappointed . Now I think that I want one of his Steel Devilles .
