I just picked up a very nice Steinberger L2 four string. I'd always wanted one and like the feel and sound. But I have such strong associations with this bass to my 80's new wave roots (hair gel, rolled up blazer sleeves, Simmons Drums) Today, I play with a contemporary singer songwriter and don't have to worry about bandleaders or conveying the right metal/alt/country/etc. "image." Depending on the songlist I'll bring an NS electric upright, a Rob Allen Deep 5, EB Stingray, Veillette custom or favorite MIM Fender P. What I'm curious about is when you see someone playing a vintage Fender you probably don't read much into it. What is your first thought when you see someone playing a Steinberger (outside of the new wave tribute band)?
