    Look at what I came home this afternoon. This thing plays so nicely and sounds spectacular. Thanks Irreverent

    I bet you are glad you got that instead of that plain old 335. Sweet guitar!

    May I be so forward as to ask how much?

    I've played a few and really liked then.

    It's another gas thing. I've got 68 Tele with a paf in the middle.

    Do I need another or do I need a Lp Jr or a 339, how about a new reso.

    I'll rob a bank and get all of them.

    I will be glad to. She deserves to be shown off. Jand M, this is definitely more exciting than the 335 but I would love to have it too. Unfortunately, this has to be it for awhile!!!

    Congrats on a great score...I was all set to trade my Steelcaster but came to my senses just in time! Enjoy, they're stellar instruments!

    Very beautiful guitar, Bill!
    Congratulations, my friend! I know you've anxiously been awaiting this one.
    Ought to sound killer through the SLO, eh?

    Yeah I almost lost it when I backed out initially. I probably should have actually but I'm glad no one jumped on it before I smartened up. Thanks Bluesjuke!!!

    Yeah Marko, I can't wait to hear it with my SLO. I got news yesterday/last night, that the SLO is one her way home. It should be here by the middle of next week I hope!! Can't wait!!

    Man that looks just beautiful!

    I've been wanting to check out a Trussart as well. I've had a recent spell of major Tele Gas, and I have to agree with you, Trussarts are definitely more exciting than just normal wooden teles.

    How's the neck shape? And also how is the pickguard, any sharp edges along the sides?

    I recently watched a demo of a Rivera amp on youtube, the demo guy was playing a Gretsch at first, when he switched over to the Trussart, it sounded as if he was playing through a totally different amp.

    Congratulations!

    I have never had as much fun as I am having with my new Trussart. Although I love all of my guitars, this Trussart is on another level. I thought my Modulus Graphite was the most unique, most fun guitar I have but I was wrong. It's a great guitar but this Trussart is just different.

    Thanks Irreverent. She will be taken care of well. She has found a permanent home here in CT!!!

    Bill

    Glad to hear that you're digging it so much, Bill. I've always wanted a Trussart... maybe it'll be my time to experience one soon enough! Very unique looking, playing and sounding guitars!

    Another day with the Trussart and I am still finding cooler tones than before. This guitar is remarkably incredible!!!!
