These guitars get better and better with each one that passes through our doors, and this one is no exception.
The Steelcaster Standard takes the T-type blueprint and pushes it to the extreme design and aesthetics that Trussart has made his name with. Here we have an all-steel body, perforated with holes all over for reduced weight and improved resonance. The rusted sunburst finish is complemented with a crocodile skin-printed steel scratchplate. A good handful of maple neck is complimented with a rosewood fingerboard, standard T-type electronics, but with a TV Jones neck humbucker for some extra throaty output.
The SteelCaster has the look and feel of a vintage instrument with while also featuring our exclusive hollow steel body and custom metal appointments. The steel while also being the perfect medium to display the beautiful Trussart custom finishes also has tonal advantages.
The Trussart SteelCaster tone is a uniquely annunciated sound that, combined with the resonant qualities of the hollow steel body can range from sweet, crystal clear tones to aggressive screaming lead tones. The construction of these instruments is only half of the story, the other half is the finish, every instrument comes with a history and a slight element of neglect, of decay, so it has a personality of it's own.
This Trussart has found it's way into the hands of many guitarists including Billy Gibbons, Robert Cray, Tom Morello (Rage against the Machine, Audioslave), Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Pearl Jam, Marc Ribot, Metallica and Joe Perry, to name only a few
