Steinberger GT-Pro

Steinberger Spirit GT-PRO DeluxePublished on 01/01/03 at 15:00
AFter waiting for MusicYo.com to get these back in stock, I finally snagged one for $255 through an Ebay auction. The first time I saw this headless "broom", I knew it would be a companion to my Strat and Tele.

The unit was brand new with no nicks or scratches. The size and looks are first noticed until you pick it up and start playing. The neck is smooth and easy to run up all 24 frets. It's fairly easy to tune with the 40:1 ratio tuners in the bridge as long as you have slender fingers. I keep the trem locked (for a reason), but it stays in tune well after bends. The design of the body allows the guitar to stand up against any wall, couch, etc. without falling over. I've taken......

AFter waiting for MusicYo.com to get these back in stock, I finally snagged one for $255 through an Ebay auction. The first time I saw this headless "broom", I knew it would be a companion to my Strat and Tele.

The unit was brand new with no nicks or scratches. The size and looks are first noticed until you pick it up and start playing. The neck is smooth and easy to run up all 24 frets. It's fairly easy to tune with the 40:1 ratio tuners in the bridge as long as you have slender fingers. I keep the trem locked (for a reason), but it stays in tune well after bends. The design of the body allows the guitar to stand up against any wall, couch, etc. without falling over. I've taken it with me on a company plane and it traveled well. It's easy to pick up when you get the urge.

The bridge is not centered in the body cavity, probably since assembly in Korea. This causes the trem, when unlocked, to have difficulty finding it's resting position due to rubbing against the body cavity. This should be fixable, when I have time, but for now I keep the trem locked. The small body design also puts the volume control in the strum path. I've hit the control while exercising some spirited strumming, inadvertantly changing volume.

This is not an American made product so don't expect Gibson (parent company) or USA Fender quality. The problem with the bridge is foremost. There is a little residue at the edge of two frets on the fretboard, which will be cleaned up when I take the bridge apart. The white finish is great with no flaws evident. The flip out leg rest is pretty slick, as well.

I bought this as a fun guitar, which is exactly what it is. If Gibson would make a USA model of it with a hardtail option, I'd buy one for serious gigging. I contacted MusicYo via email with questions on disassembly of the trem, but never heard from them probably because I didn't buy it directly from them. But I'd buy another just like it, if I had to do it again.

Bought from Thomann.
Guitar Maple driver whose key handle is rosewood, 24 frets. The finishes are impeccable. Comes with its soft, padded cover.
In my config, 2 humbucker and 1 single centrally.
A volume knob and a tone.
R-Trem bridge can be blocked if you do not use vibrato.
The headstock of the GT seems pretty basic compared to the more consistent head synapse model. However, no problem at this level on the GT Pro Deluxe.

UTILIZATION

I will not dwell on the weight of this guitar: It is a feather compared to the other!
When empty, the strings sound and resonate perfectly well despite the small body of the guitar.

UTILIZATION

I will not dwell on the weight of this guitar: It is a feather compared to the other!
When empty, the strings sound and resonate perfectly well despite the small body of the guitar.
There is a plate on the underside of the body that can be unfolded to the caller on the guitar knee sitting position.
On my model, Mollettes adjusting the tuning at the bridge are generally quite hard.

SOUNDS

The sound level, microphones installed on the Steinberger GT Pro will not issue a high level of output as would be the case with the EMG of the Synapse. In this regard, those who suffer most from this level problem for me is the bridge humbucker I have advantageously replaced by a DiMarzio DP207 Dropsonic: At present, the pickup really respondent and it sounds great on this guitar .
The single central microphone is very flat when used alone, but we can do something if it is coupled with the two humbuckers.
As for the humbucker neck: RAS, he plays his role well.

OVERALL OPINION

I have this guitar for 1 year and I do not regret it. What a pleasure to play on a guitar that is both lightweight and discreet that sounds!
Depending on the style and tastes of each, replacing one or two microphones may be required for it to really take off. This is, I think, at this level it really fishing the most.
