Andre Duchossoir, author of definitive books on the Strat, the Tele, Gibson electrics and Gibson lap steels, has died. I've only seen postings on a British Instagram and a British forum (for the Shadows band), so I don't have details. Although he lived in Paris and was a banker by trade, Andre was a pioneer in uncovering the history of American guitars. His research was so thorough and accurate that his books are still primary sources for anyone looking for detailed information on Fenders and electric Gibsons. (For proof, just search this forum for "Duchossoir" to see how often his work is cited.) Anyone who ever wrote a book about electric guitars owes a debt of gratitude to him. He will be greatly missed.
