Quotations from James Trussart Players

“With country, blues, classic rock, and alternative artists all singing the
praises of these exceptional instruments, combined with the fact that only
about 300 instruments are produced each year, the value, collectibility

About James Trussart
James Trussart began crafting metal violins, dulcimers
and hurdy gurdies in France in the late 1970’s before
switching his focus to guitars. He is one of the few
builders who has broken the mold of traditional guitar
making. Settled in Los Angeles since 2000, he provides
rare and collectible handcrafted instruments.
Working with steel as his primary material, he produces
instruments that are as unique in appearance as they
are in tone.

The SteelPhonic is a steel hollow-bodied guitar designed to capture the ringing metallic tones of a classic resonator guitar. It is built around a metal candy box attached to
a uniquely flavored custom transducer pickup that can be blended with the sound of the
mini-humbuckers, creating an array of pleasing original sounds in mono or stereo that
no other guitar can produce.
With separate volume and tone controls for each pickup, you can run two completely discreet amplifiers at the same time. One Amp can be set up for distortion or used with guitar
effects pedals, the other for clean tones. With this configurarion you can switch back
and forth or blend them to create entirely new sounds with endless possibilities!

The magnetic pickup has a great clarity and definition,
and when plugged into an acoustic amp, sounds
remarkably natural with tons of output, but can
also be overdriven for loud heavy delta blues
sounds.
The Fishman pickup installed at the cone provides a
richer, warmer, acoustic sound. It comes with a
stereo cable. It doesn’t take long to realize the
enormous amount of versatility this combination is
capable of.
