1986 James Trussart super-telecaster


OK so we acknowledge that the 1980s produced angular and geometrical guitars, but it also saw the birth of the superstrat - and of the more anecdotical super-telecaster such as this very yellow one-off by James Trussart, who was not by then the renowned creator of rusted steel bodied guitars he became later.

Like a superstrat it has EMG pickups, no tone knob, a Floyd Rose trem and a reverse banana headstock - and its flashy color must have been perfect to play Tennis-Wristband Metal - the latest and worst avatar of Glam Metal .
