    Default Ed's Steingerger

    Anyone know the model # of Ed's guitar. I really want one, but I am having a hard time finding one with the right bridge. None of the ones I have seen have the TransTrem.

    Thanks,

    Joe

    first off what's a Steingerger ?? secondly I forgot the model but you have to look on ebay for one, the only place that sells new SteinBERGERS that I'm aware of is www.musicyo.com and the only ones there that have the TT are the full body models , you can though buy the little squarish doo dad and then buy a TT and have it installed but your're opening a big can o' worms there.

    Sorry about the spelling error, didn't notice 'till you pointed it out though. Yeah, I have heard that converting is close to impossible. I certainly don't have the skills! Shit, I can't even spell.

    If you want a Stienberger GL with TransTrem you're going to have to get it used. Around 1996 (give or take a few years - not exactly sure) Gibson bought Stienberger Sound from Ned Stienberger. For only a few years, Stienberger produced new instruments out of the old factory. Eventually they shut it down and started "tweaking" the brand. In the past few years, Gibson started selling Stienberger guitars from a website-only portal. There are many problems however including lack of replacement parts, build quality, and some changes in the supply chain (for example: Moses Graphite now supplies Gibson with the necks).

    The biggest thing, in regards to your question, is that a True GL is no longer being made. The GL was all graphite composite, from head to toe. The modern GLB model has a wooden body and thus reacts differently & sounds different from the GL. In addition, as you're aware, the GLB doesn't come standard with TransTrem (only S-Trem).

    The TransTrem is actually a hard thing to come by these days. There's rumor that Ned Stienberger is working with Gibson on a TransTrem version 3 for the new Synapse line of Stienberger guitars but there's no official word on when its coming out (and you can BET it will be expensive).

    Word to the wise: if you're looking for Stienbergers you might come across a guy named Ed Roman who claims to own Stienberger's old stock from the old factory. While I will refrain from saying good/bad about him ("...if you can't say nuthin' nice, don't say anything at all..."), do your research before working with him. Not doing so could be problematic for you if you choose to deal with him. Although, its not much better working with Gibson. =)

    The trans trem probably costs more than the actual guitar.

    +1. I bought a transtrem for cost back in 1999 for around $350. That's one expensive unit.

    If you do get a Steinberger, as cool as it is, make sure to get extra high E strings. Playing "Summer Nights" or "Me Wise Magic" with all the key shift
    changes on the transtrem wears the ball ends out QUICK.

    On another note, I would've liked to have seen the EVH Steinberger (the prototype of which looked like a modified strat (GM) body) come to fruition.
    That showed some promise. But, alas, he settled down with Ernie Ball instead
    and used a stock Floyd.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    I've got a Steinberger GM5T (Strat body with Hum/Single) Trans-Trem model.

    It's the only guitar I had from about 1988-1998. I don't play it anymore because the frets are worn out, and it's hard to get parts for that trans-trem if something should break. Awesome guitar though, the only thing I didn't like too much were the EMG's. I never once actually used the Trans-Trem feature for anything, but it does stay in tune. You will need the specially calibrated strings though, regular double-ball end strings won't stay in tune real well...

    If you find one, make sure the serial # is in the "Nxxxx" format. That means it was made in Newburgh, NY like Eddie's... This site may help you out:
