They say "looks aren't everything", and in every day living I'd agree, but in terms of live performance, looks mean as much as sound. Showmanship is part of the entertainment factor, so with that in mind - in the same way that you wouldn't desire to see Slayer on stage with modified banjos to riff out their metal to fans, you wouldn't want to play one of these on stage, at least not to metal fans - it's just - not a metal-looking guitar.

If you play progressive music, more along the lines of Yes, then I'd say it's an appropriate looking guitar.

Based on what I've seen from the videos, I bet it would make an amazing studio recording guitar tho!

Just my opinion biggrin.gif

I don't like Steinberger guitar, but this ZT3 looks cool. the last demo vid is very good, and show a good-looking guitar (that's so important for me, side by side with quality)

the only thing I really hate (yes, it's a hard word but it's true LOL) is the neck... or should I say the Neckless?

but, that's my opinion. smile.gif


This one is for you Lian! (with Emgs and piezo!)

Unfortunately this guitar seems to be impossible to get to Sweden - I assume it's because you can't get any support for it here sad.gif

Aren't they now part of the Gibson stable? If so then you might be able to get one as a special order direct through Rosetti (or whoever has the Gibson European import rights).

This thread really gave me GAS for steinbergers, but here they really seem... impossible to get a hold of. Imagine... a 7 string Steinberger biggrin.gif

..I guess my new-found-love for Cynic helps my steinberger GAS. xD

I know what you are talikning about! These are fantastic instruments - but I am currently looking at a parker fly mojo instead. They are extremely pricey but do pop up used at ebay quite often.
