James Trussart SteelGuard-O-Matic in Translucent TV




The new James Trussart SteelGuard-O-Matic features a lightweight wood body and has the look and feel of a vintage instrument, but also features the engraved steel parts, relic’d finishes, playability, tone and workmanship James Trussart is known for. Other features include a Translucent TV finish over a lightweight Sugar Pine body, Maple neck and fretboard, Rust-O-Matic Pinstriped pickguard, backplate and headcap and custom wound Arcane pickups.

The contoured wood body and custom metal appointments are beautiful to look at as well as being functional. For instance, the trademarked recessed steel headcap adds mass to the headstock and increases sustain. The steel, while also being the perfect medium to display the beautiful Trussart custom finishes and engraving, also has tonal advantages. The SteelGuard-O-Matic tone is a uniquely classic sound that, combined with the resonant qualities of the body and steel parts, can range from sweet thick classic tones to the heaviest lead tones.
