Truly a guitar for a rock star! Trussarts have been used by Billy Gibbons, Jack White, Daniel Lanois, Peter Stroud, Rich Robinson, Billy Corgan, Marc Ribot and the list goes on. Why? Incredible tone and feel. Trussarts are made of steel for a sound and feel like nothing else. The semi hollow steel body truly feels alive. Incredible sustain, awesome articulation and great response are what you'll find in a Trussart. This Deluxe Steelcaster is no exception. Sporting a steel body it recalls a famous shape. Semi hollow with a hip f hole, you can hear the great tone before plugging in. The 25.5 inch scale grey stained maple neck features a 9" radius maple fingerboard with 6105 frets. A Seymour Duncan Antiquity bridge pickup teams up with an incredible sounding Lindy Fralin Twangmaster for outrageous tones. A customized Bigsby B-16 vibrato dishes out all of the twangy vibrato you can handle while Kluson tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is the somewhat uncommon shiny nickel. A bear to photograph, it will reflect everything in your path. An incredible stage guitar. One of the coolest guitars I've had in years!

This Trussart plays and sounds great. The neck is straight, the frets are good and the action is fine. The pickups deliver a variety of killer tones. Everything works as it should. Condition wise, this guitar shows some normal wear. The nickel plating is showing some scratches, fingerprints and light corrosion. I'm certain it could be polished out some but the vibe is cool as is. A very cool looking instrument.

Trussart instruments are hard to find but well worth the effort. Incredible tone and even more incredible looks. This particular Steelcaster is definitely unique combining the shiny nickel finish, Bigsby and Twangmaster pickup. You're almost certain to never see another like this. Trussart lists similar instruments at over $5K. Here's one that's ready to go.
