The Steelcaster Bass offers a new and distinctive addition to the bass world. Patented "Holey" steel is used for the completely hollow body, reducing weight and eliminating feedback. This bass has a hollow steel body with perforated steel 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 also being the perfect medium to display the beautiful Trussart custom finishes and engravings also has tonal advantages. The Trussart SteelCaster Bass' tone is a uniquely classic, fat and resonant tone combined with an edge that cuts through. The construction of 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 decay, so it has a personality of its own.
