I added another Trussart to my guitar collection today - this is my 4th! I've also got a Steel Deville, Steel Caster, and Steel Caster Deluxe. I picked up this Steel Top from Jay Rosen - vintage/boutique guitar dealer in the Bay area. I've been wanting to add one of these for a long time. I found the right one with Jay. She's a beauty to me! I was never really into the worn/rusty finishes on the Steel Devilles or Steel Casters but, something about that type of finish on a Steel Top just worked for me. I eyeballed quite a few before I chose this one - I liked it because of the finish. It's almost like a tiger stripe or something like a brindle coat on a Bulldog of Boxer when you look at it in person. I just fell in when I saw it. It really doesn't look like some of the other rusty versions I've seen. She came today - I cleaned her up, oiled the board, and restrung with my favorite strings (Everly B-52s - 10 guage). Mahogany body and neck, 59 profile. Duncans - I think! I'll have to check - Jay thought they were - so they are either Alnico IIs or Antiquities. I'll be able to tell as soon as I plug in. She rings like a bell acoustically. Unbeliebably resonant. She ways in around a little lighter than my Steel Deville in the pic - probably just below 9 lbs. Time to plug in and put her though the paces with the Clubman! I've always leaned towards traditional guitars like LPs, Teles, Stats, Gretsches, etc - but, James Trussarts have really changed all that!! They are some of the best guitars in my collection! A couple pics below (sorry, I'm not the best photographer - but, they'll do!!!).
