James Trussart Steelphonic
Beautiful James Trussart Steelphonic. This model is very hard to find and seldom come up for sale.
Trussart describes the Steelphonic as
"A classic single cutaway design with a hollow steel body and a wood neck that is both beautiful to look at and to play. Designed to capture the ringing, metallic tones of classic resonator guitars while having the feel and playability of an electric, the SteelPhonic's sound is built around a metal "candy box" attached to a transducer pickup. This unique flavor can be blended with the sound of the guitar's two magnetic pickups, creating an array of pleasing sounds no other guitar can produce. "
This example looks, plays, and sounds great. In addition to the factory aging process, this one looks to have seen some honest road wear giving it a very cool, authentic blues bar vibe. This is a great playing / sounding instrument and a rare find. Includes original hard shell case.
