James Trussart proudly introduces another custom steel creation, a Steelcaster featuring his new exclusive paisley engraved design. The Steelcaster is as comfortable as a vintage instrument. Equally at home being played on stage as it is on display as a piece of art, every Trussart is loaded with unique custom details.

The exclusive custom hollow steel body—while also being the perfect medium to display the handsome Trussart custom engravings and finishes—also has tonal advantages. The Steelcaster features Trussart's custom metal appointments like the recessed steel head cap, which is handsome as well as functional. By adding mass to the headstock, it increases sustain. 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 all its own.
