    After reviewing the past threads on it... I am picking up one of those new Steinbergers from musicyo.com . I am getting the 5 string spirit model in white.

    I can hardly wait to get it... This is numero cuatro for me!!! :p

    I got it!

    It looks and sounds way cool... I have the white, 5 string model. It came today, and although it has a couple of issues I like it a lot!

    Issue #1 looking at the bridge, if you get close enough to pear beyond the machine heads you can see that they miscut the wood a bit here and didn't try to fill it in or anything, just painted over it.

    Issue #2 the flip out doohicky so that you can play it on your lap seems loose to me.

    Other than that, it looks great and sounds real nice. It's punchy, as I remember they were when I played one last (back in the 80s!!) and the string spacing is pretty generous. Slapping should not be a problem (for the limited stuff I do anyways). It was in tune when it arrived believe it or not... all in all, I am stoked. :D

    That does it, this round is on me!! :)
