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 Steelcaster is no exception. Sporting a steel body it recalls a famous shape. Semi hollow, you can hear the great tone before plugging in. The 25.5 inch scale vintage yellow stained maple neck features a 9" radius maple fingerboard with 6105 frets. Options on this example include a reverse headstock and perforated back. A set of killer sounding Arcane single coils team up for outrageous tones. A 6 saddle string through bridge and Kluson tuners keep it rock solid. The finish is called Rustomatic White Star and looks awesome. An incredible stage guitar. One of my favorite in stock guitars!

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. This is a well taken care of instrument. As these have an aged finish, it would be silly to rate cosmetic condition. This one appears to have had little playtime. Comes in original hardshell case.

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 White Star finish, holey back and reverse headstock. You're almost certain to never see another like this. Trussart dealers  lists similar instruments at nearly $4K. Here's one that's ready to go for less.
