Trussart Deluxe SteelCaster Rust o Matic #23037 Electric Guitar

Crafted by the visionary luthier James Trussart, this incredible Trussart Deluxe SteelCaster Rust o Matic is a guitar that's truly in a league of its own. 

James Trussart, a true pioneer in the world of guitar making, broke the mould by using steel as his primary material. His instruments are as unique in appearance as they are in tone, showcasing dazzling finishes reminiscent of chrome resonator instruments or rustic, weathered machinery. Trussart's innovative craftsmanship has earned him a place in the hands of legendary artists such as Billy Gibbons, Eric Clapton, and Bob Dylan, to name just a few. 

With its unique steel construction, this Deluxe SteelCaster boasts a vintage-inspired Rust o Matic weathered finish that's unlike anything you've seen. It's not just a guitar; it's a one-of-a-kind work of art. Custom metal appointments add to its visual allure, including a 'Gator' print textured pickguard and a perforated weight-relieved back. This guitar also features a tobacco-stained Red Maple neck with an Indian Rosewood fretboard, a Bigsby B16 tremolo with Vibramate string spoiler (for no-fuss restringing), an Arcane Telecaster bridge pickup, and a TV Jones Magnatron neck pickup, ensuring it meets the high standards of demanding musicians.

But what truly sets this guitar apart is its tone. The Trussart Deluxe SteelCaster delivers a one-of-a-kind sound, from sweet, crystal-clear notes to aggressive, screaming leads. It's a tonal palette unlike any other, and it's earned its place in the hands of legendary players like Billy Gibbons, Tom Morello, and Joe Perry. From sweet, crystalline tones to searing lead sounds, it offers a dynamic range that's truly exceptional. Each Trussart guitar carries a history and a touch of artistic neglect, giving it a distinctive personality unmatched in the world of electric guitars.
