I had a handmade guitar for thirty years that had a label inside the soundhole that said it was made by Phillip T. Buss in Madison, Wisconsin in 1965. It was really pretty and I liked it a lot , but so did someone else, and it was stolen from my home. I've given up looking for it, I'm just interested if anyone else bought or played guitars made by Mr. Buss?

Just saw this while doing a search for Phil. We were buddies in Madison in the 60's where he was a guitarist and banjo player in the folk scene of the time. He started making guitars around '64 or so and a friend of mine, Van Rozay from San Jose, bought one of them. Said it was pretty damn good. I'm not a guitar player myself so have no idea. Van lifes out in Washington State I think. I hear from him from time to time. He put an album out awhile back and it was pretty good. He's a Long time singer-songwriter friend since my childhood.

Phil moved to Santa Fe in the early 80's and that was the last thing I know about him. I lived there from 77 to 90 but haven't been back since 94 and have not been in touch with anyone there since then.

One musician from Madison days who might know of his whereabouts is Johnny Kalb, Danny Kalb's younger brother. He lives in NYC and plays around the city and also makes guitars I think. They knew eachother really well so if Phil is still alive he might know something.

Good luck with your search.
