  1. I've been gasing for a Steinberger!!!! Especially the new XS!!
    SO, I was wondering what people thought about'em.

    I love my 'berger, but it's a 1988 XL-2 I bought new. I haven't had experience with the more recent models. Strings are pricey but easy to change, and cleaning them by soaking them in denatured alcohol is a snap!

    Is the XS neck-through-body construction? My 'berger has terrific sustain because of its one-piece graphite construction. It's also A LOT heavier than it looks.
