PM'd Steve about this but thought I'd open myself up for public ridicule :l: I know everyone here will hate it but for my purposes; it's actually cool. I've always wanted a Steinberger and I dig the finish. As well as it already has a GK bolted to it :D

Problems: It's currently a lefty. It has a GK3 mounted on it. I'd have to convert it back to righty (where it started it's life) and remount the GK pickup to the bottom, um' "horn" :lol: Which would cover up at least one of the control cavity holes on the bottom. Anyone know how difficult the "back to right handed guitar" conversion process would be? Is it simply a case of restringing it or would it need a new nut...?

Lace Sensor Alumitones? Beyond that not sure. If we're being honest; I don't like having a center pickup. So there's that. BUt I am betting the Jenga pickups sounded better than the stock EMG selects or whatever came with it in the first place :hmm:

Izzat a TransTrem (sp?). If so, that would be fun to play with. Also was curious about the pickups.

No idea about the difficulty of conversion. Well, outside of my professional application. Er. But yeah.
As you say, for what you do, it seems perfect, if you can get it back to righty spec. :thu:

1. not a real steinberger
2. cheese dick pickups
3. abomination synth pickup
4. it's a headless paddle
5. doesn't have the flip out thingy to rest on leg.

Total piece of shit. It would at least have some historical value were it a real steinberger with stock everything.

Gene; thank you.
1. I'll take that.
2. Not a fan of the looks; so I'll take that too.
3. Agree to disagree as you have no use for it in your application but I use mine all the time in a 4 hour night.
4. Agree to agree :D
5. I am betting they removed it for the current control location.
