    Trying to do a head count and exchange with other Trussart owners. I absolutely LOVE mine, best guitar I've ever payed by far. Anybody else ?

    The first one in my guitar in the press with the alliator skin to create the imprint. The second one is the headstock cap unwrapped from the skin and the third one the rusty body with alligator imprinted and the white star painted but not sealed or painted yet

    One of the best T's I ever played was a one I played at Willcut Music in Lexington.

    Fantastic tone!! And believe me, I don't listen with my eyes or billfold.

    I have a baritone Steelcaster that's strung with stock .013-.056. Wondering if I should put this here .013-.072 set on it. I'd hate to have to mess with the nut, but I have a slight desire to go more baritoney.

    What sucks is that I'm considering having James custom make me an axe, and I think that after seeing yours, I'd probably just ask him for one exactly like it. So that kind of blows the whole "custom" idea...

    Again, congrats on owning The Coolest Guitar in the History of the World.

    I used to own both of these, but sold them to fund other items.

    But sorry to say I don't think I will ever buy another. Just didn't bond with them...

    Thanks mate, just go for it, no two are ever the same. That modified bigsby is awesome and he fitted a vibramate spoiler even though I didn't ask for one.

    If you do order ask Tanya take some pice and make sure you post them.

    Can't recommend highly enough, it's the one I would go through a fire for!!

    As others have said, I can't afford one, but man, that "Shiny Nickel" one sure looks good to me! :grin:
