JAMES TRUSSART GUITARS AT DESERT TRIP FESTIVAL

Tagged in: Artists
From North American Guitar, posted by Richard Poll on October 21st, 2016:

We are big fans of our newest electric guitar luthier, James Trussart, and so are a number of incredibly well known and respected guitarists, including Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Charlie Sexton and Bob Dylan.

At the recent US festival Desert Trip in California, The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards was playing his Trussart SteelCaster, while singer Mick Jagger also strapped on his Trussart SteelPhonic for 'Moonlight Mile':

The Rolling Stones opened the first night of the festival, along with Bob Dylan and his band, featuring Charlie Sexton playing his Trussart SteelCaster:

METALLICA on a James Trussart Explorer Steel X

Tagged in: Artists
DESCRIPTION
The Steel X is an asymmetrical classic, while also featuring another James Trussart original invention: the recessed steel top plate. The metal plate sits in a recessed area on the face of the instrument, which keeps the edge of the metal plate covered, adding comfort as well as styling.
In addition to the recessed steel top plate, our exclusive chambered wood body and custom metal appointments are beautiful to look at as well as being functional. For instance, the recessed steel head cap adds mass to the headstock and increases sustain.
The steel, while also being the perfect medium to display the beautiful Trussart custom finishes and engraving, also has tonal advantages. The Steeltop tone is a uniquely classic sound that, combined with the resonant qualities of the chambered body and steel top, can range from sweet thick classic tones to the heaviest lead tones.
Equally at home being played on stage or on display as a piece of art, you will know you have something special the moment you lay your hands on this instrument, as every Trussart is loaded with unique custom details. The construction of these instruments is only half of the story; the other half is the finish. Steeltops are available with distressed finishes that come with a history and a slight element of neglect-of decay-so it has a personality all its own.
