James Trussart - Luthier to the World’s Most Iconic Artists - Joins VIGF!

Get up close and personal with the man who makes guitars for the most influential artists of our generation creating a tone so unique it defines the artists sound.
We are thrilled to announce James Trussart will be joining the Vancouver International Guitar Festival, August 11, 12 at the state-of-the-art Creekside Community Centre in the former Olympic Village. James is a “rock star” in the world of electric guitar building and will be giving a masterclass on Sunday, August 12.
Trussart is one of the few builders who has broken the mold of traditional guitar making. He has implemented a unique marriage of traditional tonewoods and metal components to create truly unique works of art. The craftmanship and creativity that goes into his masterpieces played by a rock roll dream team of musicians, world class artists and aficionados from around the world is legendary.
Trussart began his career as a fiddler, accompanying Cajun singer-songwriter Zachary Richard in the late '70s, before turning his attention to crafting violins and later guitars in the 1980s.
From his Los Angeles home and workshop, Trussart crafts custom steel-bodied guitars, basses, and violins in a dazzling array of finishes, reminiscent of shiny chrome resonator instruments and rusty, weathered, fossilized discarded machinery.
The tone is so distinctive that Trussart guitars have become 'must-have' instruments in the arsenals of influential artists including Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Paul Simon, Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons, Joe Walsh, Jack White, Charlie Sexton, Daniel Lanois, Marc Ribot, Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow), Rich Robinson (Black Crowes), Sonny Landreth, Joe Perry, Tom Morello, Billy Corgan, The Roots, and many, many more.
