    WOW.....thats alot of money..

  2. Wow, how cool is that?

    The Steinberger XL is the nicest playing 4-string I have ever played, bar none.

    What is the average, used XL 4 selling for these days?

    May be worth it if you're a collector. Don't think it's worth it from a playing standpoint. That's just my humble opinion, I don't like these basses. I've owned several of them over the years, even one that had a full-on synth interface. In every case, I ended up getting rid of it 'cause it's just too darn light. I don't like a bass that flops around when I'm playing it. I like my bass to stay put. I like it to be heavy enough so that if I pop it with my hip it comes right back into place. I don't like basses that are "too heavy" either. My F bass BN5 is just about right, it's nice and light but it's heavy and balanced enough to behave correctly. The physical attributes of a bass are sometimes just as important as the sound.
