This is the best choice for intermediate and advanced guitarist... The guitare is really professional for the price...

Note : you can now buy new graphite steinberger... In sale at Music Yo! The new collection of Steinberger is incridible... But really expensive... so the Spirite GT-Pro Delux is an exellent alternative!

While you may not want to consider this as your main axe, it does fill a lot of needs, especially when traveling. For those of us that tire of lugging gear to gigs and practices, this guitar really fits the bill. Plus, it just looks doggone cool!

Features:
A great guitar for the money. Made of hard maple, with a rosewood fingerboard and 24 frets, the action is great, and the tremolo works flawlessly. It has three EMG pickups, the two opposing ones being humbuckers, and the middle is an advanced single coil design. Very quiet, no hum, and very loud through the amp -- almost like having an active setup. The double ball-end strings are easy to set up, and stay in tune well, even when dive-bombing the whammy bar. Sting availability can be a little dicey -- it would be nice to see some retail stores stock them, instead of having to special order. They are available from at least three different manufacturers, and can be obtained on the net from a number of locations at competitive prices (compared to standard strings). (MusicYo, JustStrings, etc.)
Playability:
A small guitar that takes a little getting used to, yet the more you play it, the better it gets. My only gripe is the placement of the volume knob, where I find that my picking motion constantly moves the knob. I've taken the knob off, and adjust volume by tweaking the bare post, and find that, though it looks ugly, it works just fine. Fit and finish otherwise, are flawless
Sound Quality:
This guitar will play soft jazz chords, and turn around and burn a rock riff. Sound is definitely flexable. The five position selector works exactly like a Strat, so those who own both won't have a steep learning curve. Sound is suprising for such a small instrument. Sustain is great due to the through-the-neck design.
Durability:
It's been great so far. Steinberger's recent add shows a guy standing on the guitar as it's bridged across some blocks, and they claim that it didn't warp or go out of tune. I believe it! It's a heavy piece for it's size, but the weight accounts for the fact that it's built like a battleship.

I wanted something affordable, that looked cool, and sounded great. If you can't afford a "real" Stienberger (they don't even make 'em anymore) then this is an excellent alternative! I would absolutely buy this guitar again if it was stolen. It has become my main weapon of choice for jamming, recording and giging.

Made in Korea, another brand marketed by Gibson, and only availble through www.musicyo.com. Small (Boat Oar) Maple Body and 24 fret hard rock maple headless neck. Volume, Tone, and 5-way p/u switch. H/S/H Passive EMG Select pickups. Stienberger R-Trem bridge with 40:1 tuners.
Playability:
This guitar rocks! It is perfect for the office, couch, and especially for traveling. It's small size make it a perfect Airline carry-on! The neck is a bit fatter than a Strat, more like a Les Paul. Finish is flawless! (mine is black) If you are looking for an inexpensive, compact and versitle guitar, this is the one for you.
Sound Quality:
I play it through my Digitech Rack, and/or my 2 Roland combos. it sounds great! The pickups are very quiet. This guitar has a very 80's rock sound to it. (i.e. Rush, Def Leppard) For what I wanted out of it, I really like it!
Durability:
This is guitar is extremely stable! Better than most Floyds I have played! You can lock the bridge, so if you break a string, it will stay in tune. Very cool feature! I play hard rock and I can wiggle the hell out of the whammy bar, and not knock this guy out of tune! The strap locks are very good, but as a personal rule, I install locking ones on all of my guitars. Changing strings is cake with the double end strings. You can do the entire guitar in just a few minutes!
