NGD: Steinberger GP

Got this a few weeks ago, and just got it set up. TransTrem works beautifully. I'm really happy with it.

I travel a fair amount, so was considering getting a headless to take with me. Initially didn't think I could spend what it would take to get a real Steinberger, so was going to settle for one of the Spirits or Hohners. Then this one popped up on the auction site. Got it for considerably lower than a few of the others I had seen. The L series (boat oar shape) like Van Halen played are all composite, and are in the $3-$4k range - definitely couldn't step up to one of those! Even the other GPs I saw were $400-$500 more than I had to pay for this one.

This is the GP series - wood body with graphite neck, active EMGs. It's all original, built in 1986.

Time to learn how to play Summer Nights properly.

I really like how these Steinberger guitars look, but I never had the chance to find one.
How's the neck profile?

Re: NGD: Steinberger GP

Thicker than most Ibanez. ~21mm at 1st fret and ~23mm at 12th fret. I mostly play JS's so I probably prefer thicker necks than most here on Jemsite.

I've read other reviews that compare to Les Paul - not sure about that, as I don't have one, and really never liked them at all due to the feel. This reminds of a JS, just a hair thicker then that or any of the "modern C" type fenders.

I could get addicted to the TransTrem.

Nice! I wouldn't mind having one of these. How is the balance just seems with no headstock and the small body it'd feel....different?
