Immaculately painted bodies, chromed accents, and rusty edges that are both signs of loving wear and tear and marks of character—all are found on two things James Trussart treasures: classic cars and the guitars and basses he creates.
The love goes so deep that he approaches each instrument as if he were building a fine automobile, even adorning his headstocks with a logo that’s reminiscent of Cadillac’s script font
James Trussart’s designs are very much intertwined with his life experiences and personal ties.
His love for classic cars bleeds into his overall approach to metal instruments, and his love for Cajun music and culture informs his use of alligator skin patterns and shapes like the fleur-de-lis.
Though it may seem subtle or even undetectable to the average player ogling his guitars and basses, geography is actually a recurring theme throughout his work.
Trussart often travels for inspiration and then expresses what he sees through graphics, textures, and colours.
