The SteelPhonic is 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. A true stereo instrument.

The SteelPhonic features our exclusive hollow steel body and custom metal appointments, like the recessed steel head cap that is beautiful to look at and functional - by adding mass to the headstock it increases sustain. The steel body, while being the perfect medium to display the beautiful Trussart custom finishes and engravings, also has tonal advantages.

The Trussart SteelPhonic tone has a uniquely classic, thick, and resonant tone combined with an edge that cuts through. The construction for these instruments is only half of the story - the other half is the finish. Every instrument comes with a history and a slight element of neglect of use, so it has a personality of its own.

Fret condition is virtually perfect with no real signs of wear, and no other noticeable marks on the guitar present.
