This instrument is made by a friend in Brittany (France), and this iron plate is traditionnaly used here to make pancakes. This is called a "billig" in Breton language. It weighs... 8,5 kg! Sometimes he plays with a ladle, used for pancakes too...I bet you never realised there was a connection between the guitar and pancakes before! The "Billigcaster" is the creation of Atelier de jean Vincent who also plays in Les Breihzozaures, a Celtic/Folk Rock/Electro band.
