This extraordinary instrument is a SteelCaster electric guitar hand built by legendary French Luthier James Trussart out in his Los Angeles Workshop. 
The guitar marries a Hollow Steel body with a vintage profiled, red stained Maple neck topped with a gorgeous Pau Ferro fingerboard. The pickups in this instance are a combination of the traditional Arcane Inc. Single Coil in the bridge position and a Gold Foil in the neck.
The Hollow Steel body offers a resonance and feel unlike anything else, with touch sensitive response and truly inspiring acoustic qualities that translate beautifully into the amplified tone. The '62 neck carve makes for an effortless playing experience all across the registers of the guitar. 
The pickup combination yields classic T-Style twang and bite in the bridge position, with the Gold Foil pickup in the neck position emanating a monumental dynamic range with crystal clear clarity and definition whether running into a clean or driven amplifier. 
James Trussart guitars come in a G&G Hardcase.
