      The one-of-a-kind SteelCaster line is designed by Parisian builder James Trussart. Looking like a cross between a vintage Tele and something out of an H.G. Wells novel, these aluminum hollow-bodies sport a uniquely “decayed” finish (applied using a complex top-secret process that utilizes sea salts and animal skins) that gives each SteelCaster a distinct personality all its own.
