Ned Steinberger's First Prototype Graphite Bass - $59995
Available now at HeadlessUSA is the world's rarest Steinberger prototype bass. This bass was Ned's earliest attempt at a carbon-graphite, neck-through-body bass guitar. This instrument will most certainly one day reside in a museum, as it exhibits Ned's earliest concepts of a totally new and breakthrough design. We've named it the "Platypus" because it's so unusual in appearance, yet, one can see Ned's imagination at work, as he re-thinks all of the most critical factors in modern electric bass design.
GL2 Hardtail # P-1 - $49995
The rarest bird of the Steinberger guitar world. The first prototype (pre-production) GL 6-string guitar that Ned Steinberger built. This is the earliest (to our knowledge) P-series model GL2 guitar ever manufactured in the Newburgh, NY Steinberger factory. It is a unique instrument and a true testament to the talent, ingenuity and genius of its designer...

If you want the rarest Steinberger bass added to your collection, this would be the one to own..
