    Well, just for fun, a quick review of my latest guitar, a Trussart Deluxe Steelcaster w/ Seymour Duncan Antiquities pickups. I played through a Carmen Ghia amp for clean tones. Another video through the Ghia is uploading, and a third video, this time through the Mini Z is forthcoming.

    Something must of have happened to it during shipping...it didn't sound that good when I owned it!

    Good stuff-really cool to see an old guitar of mine being used righteously...enjoy!

    Chris, thanks for the kind words, though I am quite sure that you did that guitar plenty of justice yourself!

    I gotta say, I have never paid for a guitar in the afternoon, and received an email that same afternoon to tell me that the guitar had already shipped. It was a pleasure doing business with you, and I look forward to doing so again the future. You sir, are a class act.

    Donostia, the Lentz is a beauty all right. I feel very lucky to have it. I would recommend everybody contact Scott and commission a guitar from him... just not at the same time, or that would be awful close to a Denial of Service attack :D

    Really nice sounding guitar, thanks for sharing--and Congrats!

    Extremely well-balanced, clarity, string-to-string definition--all there.

    Only thing missing--like to hear the Trussart out of a Deluxe Reverb or Tweed Deluxe for my own tone reference since I don't have a Z nor have I played one. Sounds so good out of that Z...oh no more GAS, please!

    Thanks for the kind words.

    I gotta tell you, I have been playing the guitar all night through the Mini Z head this time, with just little gain to make her sustain, and I am absolutely in love with the tones I am getting out of this guitar. Videos to follow.

    As for GAS, sorry but my new Vinetto is slated to arrive tomorrow, so... I may just have to add more videos soon :)

    and I bet we are not alone, Mojo. :D

    That sea foam green finish on yours is really growing on me...

    I'm looking out for the Mini Z vid!

    I'm relieved to read this Frisco. I must say, I didn't understand you getting rid of one Trussart, never mind two on one post!!!!

    Mojo: Killer playing and The Trussart is a beauty. They are just great guitars - simple and true!!!! I'm loving mine more and more every day!!!
