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............

I owned a Hohner (copy) back in the mid nineties. It played allright, but I could never get used to the physical nothingness. When I play, I sometimes pull the guitar in tight and you can't do it with this body style.

On th up side, you could play it in the car.

Cool idea! While I'm driving watching a DVD as usual, in between calls and Blackberry emails, I could be playing guitar!

Does anyone make a hand wired tube amp that runs on 12v and fits in the dashboard?
Are you insane? Do you realize how dangerous this is?

Yep, I used to have a PlayBus back in the mid 80's. For anybody unfamiliar with it, it was Boss' answer to Tom Scholzs Rockman.

I would have had the guitar plugged into a playbus with headphones on.

Anyone remember the playbus?

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?
