The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

Metal Body

❌SOLD❌  James Trussart SteelDeville

The Trussart SteelDeville pays homage to a classic single cutaway body shape that many players are familiar with. What may not be familiar is the super cool vibe of the antique copper body. This is a totally different kind of “Heavy Metal.” This unique guitar features a perforated “Holey Metal” back which helps to reduce the weight by approximately 1/2 pound. The “59” profile neck shape has substance and feels equally at home for blues bends and faster single note alternate picking. The electronic configuration is instantly familiar with two volume and tone controls and a three way pickup selector. The Arcane Inc humbuckers are clones of vintage Patent Applied for Pickups and produce smooth and creamy clean tones all the way to a snarling growl when cranked up! This guitar has everything you could want out of a classic single cutaway humbucker guitar as well as a unique vibe and look provided by the Antique copper body!

❌SOLD❌  James Trussart Deluxe SteelCaster

When we receive a delivery from James Trussart guitars, a small crowd is bound to form. Like my colleagues, I can’t help but get excited as as the case is opened for the first time. Every Trussart guitar we get is special in its own way. From the detailed engravings, to the different pickup combinations, to the unique resonance of the body, every single one has a bold and expressive personality of it’s own. Today we are featuring just such a guitar: the Deluxe SteelCaster.

National NRP 14 Fret

National NRP 14 Fret

The National NRP brings back memories – I owned one of the few original 1930s National Duolians that I have seen in my 40 odd years in this business that did NOT need a reset and had not history of amateur repairs…and foolishly sold it. The good part is that it went to a pro player who actually regularly gigs with it. I loved this guitar and have always been on the lookout for another. Unfortunately, most 1930s have severely overbowed necks, funky neck sets and played out original low-grade aluminum cones.

National Resophonic Guitars Baritone El Trovador

National Resophonic Guitars Baritone El Trovador

Grant special ordered this guitar for a customer, but we had so much fun with it we decided to feature it on our website and order another for the store. It is a stock El Trovador resonator guitar, but with an extended 27″ scale length. Strung up with 15-69 guage strings and set in standard baritone B to B tuning, I couldn’t believe the rich warm boom that came from the guitar with my first strum. The ring and articulation were classic National, but with a deeper drone and even longer sustain than usual (which is saying a lot!). We were a little sad to see this beauty go, but more are on the way. I just hope I don’t have to wait too long to play one again!
