    I saw a used Steinberger in a store the other day. It was the all-graphite one. What's a good price for it?

    They don't seem to come up for sale alot anymore so I wouldn't be suprised if it's expensive. However, whether it's a fair price will depend alot on its condition and whether or not there have been any alterations.

    $600-1000 depending on condition.

    I don't know the model number, but it did have a weird contraption on the nut to allow for single-ball end strings. Other than that, without playing it, it seemed like it was in pretty decent shape.

    I think they wanted about $839 for it. Didn't know if I wanted to go that route or buy a MIA Precision.

    Do you have any idea how old it is?

    Make sure that it IS the graphite model, there are a lot of less expensive maple bodied Stienbergers around that look almost exactly like the graphite.
