What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?

Have to credit Guitarz for linking to this, which is yet another Telecaster created by a French luthier. This time, it's Loïc Le Pape. Is it just me, or are there a whole lot of French luthiers making metal guitars out there? Unlike the other maker, Trussart, he seems to be making a wider variety of body styles, including ES335, Les Paul Jr, Melody Maker,Country Gentleman, Jazzmaster/Jaguar, Flying V, Explorer and reverse Firebird. Hey, Strat, there's even one of your body types up there.

The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle. You must learn its discipline. For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts. That guitar, that you can trust.
