    Default Steinberger Spirit GT PRO

    Can anyone give me some info on this guitar? I dont mean like its specs....I mean is it any good?? I am assuming this is a cheap version of the Steinberger kinda like a Wolf EXP compared to a Wolfgang Standard. Am I right or is that total balloney? Its just a guess based on the fact that Eds Steinberger costs like $1000+ and these sell at like $500 ish.

    Anyone played one or even better got one? I have always fancied a Steinberger and am very tempted.....

    I have one of these. Its ok - its the ultimate travel gutiar, full scale etc. Trem stays in tune. I stripped the screw that holds the saddles for intonation right off the bat, but the saddles will pretty much stay where you put them. I don't play it too much except for when I travel.

    Thanks for the reply. How does it sound through an amp? Does it sound anything like the GL?

    As far as compared to the GL, I couldn't say, never had the chance to do an a/b test. Through an amp, I think it actually sounds pretty good. P/u's I think would probably get classified as a little hot, and a little sterile (I'm not one of those guys who can go on about the different harmonic characteristics of a pickup). Probably some more reviews at harmony-central.com
