I'm now on to my 4th Steinberger guitar

Ned Steinberger's headless guitars have always appealed to me. The first one I owned was a bass which I'd purchased in my teens. I've since had a "Steinberger Spirit GT Pro Deluxe" and a "Steinberger Spirit GU-7R" which I recently sold. The Spirit range are the budget versions made of wood with EMG Select pickups. My most recent Steinberger, which arrived today, is the real deal. A Steinberger Synapse SS2F in white. This thing is a combination of graphite and hard maple with two EMG USA pickups (EMG-81 & EMG-85). It sounds amazing and is with out a doubt the best guitar I've owned.
