I'm curious too. I like the idea of them and the ones I've played were pretty good. A few years ago I had a headless "Headway" bass modeled after the Steinberger and I regret selling it now.

The current Steinbergers advertised in the guitar press, especially the extended scale one with integral capo look pretty cool.

Anyone?

Peace, Mooh.

I haven't tried one since the early days. I tried one of the headless black models with EMGs and it was among the best instruments I have EVER played before or since.

The only reason I didn't buy it on the spot was price.


As I recall (and it was some time ago) it was beautiful to play and responsive as he11. I remember thinking how much better it was than any Strat or LP I had played or owned.

Of course, as evidenced by the less than spectacular sales of the headless/bodyless models I was in the minority.

Excellent guitars, at least the originals. The new ones are good for the price though. Having no headstock is great, and I dont understand the Speedloaders keeping the headstock, because they have the opportunity to lose it............

Well, not a Steinberger per se but I do have a Cort bass with a "Licensed By Steinberger" bridge and tuner which I bought it back in 1985 for $250.00. I'll be taking a picture of it along with my other guitars sometime in the future.

Who own's, or has ever owned or played a Steinberger? Some reviews or comments?
