OK, I go to the store and see this Steinberger look-alike. I try it and it has an interesting chunky (?) sound. It's bad for slap and pop but otherwise it's compact and sounds fine to me (plus it looks kinda cool). So the guy says: that $250 for it. The bass appears in good condition. The prevoius owner did stick standard strings instead of double-balls. It has a small crack in the paint but it shows a very hard, dense wood. (hard maple???) I played this thing and it felt right, comfortable and had a sound I really liked. Any thoughts/info on this bass?? I'm thinking of buying it. At $250... Anything to look closely at the Steinberger system it has?
