It was a Cort copy of the ol' Steinbergers (complete with plank body and "Tuners licensed by Steinberger Sound" silkscreened underneath the Cort logo). P/J config, vol/vol/tone. The neck was nice and hand-filling, and upper-fret acces was superb. It didn't balance very well in my lap and I didn't have a strap on hand, so playing it was a bit interesting at first. In all seriousness...I loved it! I can just imagine taking a nice Steinberger headless with the whole plank body thing, a sansamp, tuner, and cable to a gig and being set up in mere seconds. It might not really suit visually in a jazz gig by most people's standards, but I love the look of the thing (I also love the look of Bongos, so there!). Seriously, what a great design! Definite props to Steinberger...but now...I've got gas! Maybe not for a Steinberger...now, that $20,000 headless FBass on eBay -- there's a keeper. Mind, the 20K price tag is just a bit sketch, so I'd probably just go with a new order from Mr. Furlanetto. Hey, Mr. Strange -- do you own any non-transtrem Steinbergers? How much did they cost, and how much would I expect to pay for a non-Gibson one?
