    9.8/10 condition

    I've never played let alone owned a Steinberger before this one, but I was pleasantly surprised. This thing sounds amazing. What surprised me the most was how comfortable an ergonomic it actually is. I expected it to be far too awkward and difficult to play. However, whether you sit it on your right or left leg, the small balancing bar that flips out from the bottom allows you to hold it very comfortably.

    There's actually a piezo built into the bridge, which I didn't mess with much, but even with one active pickup, there are many tonal options at hand here. Best of all, this thing plays incredibly well.

    This comes with a brand new Steinberger Synapse hardshell case.

    I'm just looking for trades. A Jazz bass would be awesome, but I'm open to pretty much anything (guitars especially, basses, keyboards, amps, i7 2600k processors or similar, pretty much anything)

    I have a ton of references from harmony central, rig talk, the gear page, jemsite, and one of the highest itrader ratings on sevenstring.org. I have one reference from this site as well (basskadet).

    I'm located in Mt. Pleasant, PA

    Nothing in particular - just like the ad says: guitars, basses, amps, anything really. I'm open to just about anything, even an i7 2600k processor or similar if somebody has one.

    Just let me know what you have.

    Not sure about Geddy, but the Mothman is from my neck of the woods :bassist:

    By the way, I'm primarily a guitarist, if that helps anybody out.

    If you're interested in buying it, just PM me. I'm waiting to hear back from one guy about a potential trade.

    If I were taking in an i7, I'd have to get cash as well, of course.
