Trussart SteelCaster 'Engraved Roses' #24032 Electric Guitar

Available at Acoustic Centre Melbourne

Handcrafted by the visionary luthier James Trussart, this one-of-a-kind Trussart SteelCaster is quite simply an extraordinary guitar.

James Trussart, an inventive pioneer within the realm of guitar craftsmanship, boldly defied conventions by making steel the focal point of his creations. His instruments not only possess distinctive aesthetics but also boast unparalleled sonic qualities, featuring breathtaking finishes reminiscent of chrome resonator instruments or the weathered appearance of rustic machinery. Trussart's groundbreaking artistry has earned the admiration of legendary musicians such as Billy Gibbons, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and numerous others.

This custom-built Steelcaster is a homage to Lucinda Williams' famous Roses-engraved Trussart, and features an engraved top and pickguard, perforated steel back, grey-stained Maple neck and Arcane telecatser pickups, for a high fidelity take on a classic Americana tone.

What truly sets this guitar apart is its extraordinary sound. The Trussart SteelCaster produces an unmatched and diverse range of tones, spanning from sweet, crystal-clear notes to bold and soaring leads. Its tonal versatility knows no equal, earning the admiration of celebrated musicians like Billy Gibbons, Tom Morello, and Joe Perry. With its rich history and a touch of artistic neglect, each Trussart guitar possesses a distinctive personality that sets it apart in the world of electric guitars.
