Right up front both are top notch guitars, one suited me better then the other. Trussart: Steel Deville holey back, stained Maple neck (vs. KOA) Ebony Board, Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro Pick ups. J Nunis: 1 Piece mahogany body and neck Brazilian Board, Flamed Maple top, Seymour Duncan JB (Bridge) and Jazz (neck) The Trussart is heavier by about 1 LBS I think compared to the J Nunis. One of the reasons I looked for a J Nunis was that the modern style J Nunis has one of the most comfortable necks I've ever played, this also true for this one. The Trussart neck is incredibly smooth and faster then the J Nunis. The stain I think makes it look nice to match the body. The J Nunis is very comfortable and a little thicker then the Trussart, has a carved top where as the Trussart is thinner and has a light arch. Of course both look incredibly cool, just depends what vibe you dig more. The Trussart .. is pretty darn cold when you first grab it though! Sound: Now to be honest I am a Tele/Strat player and was looking to fill it out with a bit more growl and bite from a Les Paul (style) guitar. The Trussart has excellent type balance and sound in both neck and bridge, no muddy sounds or anything like that. I think the maple neck helps make it sound a little brighter because, the J Nunis did favor the bass more (which my earlier Nunis with maple neck did not). However the Trussart lacked "power/punch" turned all the way to 10 I was getting sounds that I feel I can get from my Strat (Strat is hollow Alder with Maple top and Lollar pick ups). The J Nunis though sounded .. BEASTLY with a lot of grit and growl. The Trussart is almost "strat twangie" in the bridge, the J Nunis has that sharp bite. In the Neck the Trussart has a really nice balanced sound the Trussart has that typical Les Paul added bass. Fiddling around I settled in on keeping the J Nunis since it fits me better, I proceeded to drop in a set of Rolph 59s and auch it is one nasty beastly guitar now with bark, bite and growl. Love the sound and it is a welcome change at times from the Tele/Strat Look for the Trussart in the Emporium soon Here are some pics.
