    Anyone else see that? The guy from the SNL band was playing a trussart steelcaster, front and center.

    The blue one? It looked more like a Lentz HSL to me.

    The player is Jared Scharff and itÂ’s a Deluxe SteelCaster with the Sea Foam Green on Cream finish, a Bigsby, Maple Fingerboard and Arcane Inc. Custom T pickups.

    I should be getting a pic on Monday of Jared on the set that I can post.

    Here is his web site:

    Yup that's Jared Scharff. He's actually a childhood friend of mine, and yes, it's a real purty Trussart.

    Didn't catch much but I did catch a solo going into a commercial. He got to stand out front. Reminded me of the old G.E. Smith days. Pretty cool. I read an interview in GP last year. He sounds like a real gearhead. He mantioned that he was using a Nash strat and a Bruno Super 100.

    Great looking Trussart. Jared sorta resembles James Valentine from Maroon 5 and a young Rich Robinson.

    That guitar is a cross between my current SteelCaster and the one I will receive in a week. Great stuff! :)

    Almost my experience, except my fiancee said, "Ooooohh!" with blatantly feigned interest.
