Hi there, here I am!
I wish I had a thousand -- unfortunately I'm only at 16 original graphite Steinbergers. All but 2 of them have Transtrems.
By far, the best are the Kleins and the GS model. They outplay (and out-sound) any guitar I have ever played, bar none. The other graphite Steinbergers are also amazing, but those aforementioned ones are pure guitar nirvana.
It should be pointed out that the bass and guitar in one model is a Spirit, which has a wooden neck and is made in Korea. Hence the low price.
The TransTrems are nothing short of amazing, but only if you actually have an application for it. It would be like buying a capo for your guitar when you didn't need one. I use it for a lot of jazz stuff, my personal application. Just think; you can play "The Big Money" from Rush without a capo!
To correct some misinformation, MusicYo has only been distributing them for fourteen months, and never did before -- not on and off and not for a couple of years.
