      1968-1970 Kustom K200 Electric Guitar

      Best known for their iconic Tuck and Roll amplifiers, Kustom briefly produced a line of guitars and basses. Made in 1968 and 1969, these unique and rare instruments featured a semi-hollow body of unusual design—the front and back were made separately, hollowed out, then joined together. They have been called the love-child of a Mosrite and a Rickenbacker.

      1999 James Trussart SteelCaster Tele

      The one-of-a-kind SteelCaster line is designed by Parisian builder James Trussart. Looking like a cross between a vintage Tele and something out of an H.G. Wells novel, these aluminum hollow-bodies sport a uniquely “decayed” finish (applied using a complex top-secret process that utilizes sea salts and animal skins) that gives each SteelCaster a distinct personality all its own.
