Designed in collaboration with Richard Fortus of Guns'n'Roses and hand built by the team at James Trussart's workshop, this remarkable S-Type guitar features elements of James' signature and innovative techniques in tandem with a host of well considered tweaks that make for a formidable and versatile instrument.
Built in Sugar Pine for the body with a Steel top and bolted on Maple neck, the Steel O'Matic brings a hit of the iconic Trussart sound to the world of the S-Type. The reverse headstock offers piano-like string tension with a longer run on the bass end and vice versa with the treble strings, giving you a balanced and responsive feel under the left hand.
The pickups are a set of Hand Wound Arcane single coils that deliver notably vintage tones, but with the bridge pickup reversed and wired in to the tone control, there's a whole range of inspiring tones in an area S-Types can often fall short in.
This stunning instrument comes in a G&G Custom Hardcase.
