Trussart Guitars

Trussart Guitars are built by James Trussart in Los Angeles, California,  often with metal bodies and unique finishes and surface treatments. 

From the Trussart Guitars description: 

“Trussart’s creations are designed to have the look and feel of a vintage instrument with the added appeal of metal construction. His “Rust-O-Matic” technique (a term coined by Billy Gibbons regarding Trussart’s unique finishes) involves leaving the guitar body exposed to the elements for several weeks, allowing it to corrode before treating it to stop the corrosion. He then sands it to replicate years of distress, and then finishes it with a clear satin coat. “
