NED'S 1ST PROTOTYPE GRAPHITE BASS - $34995
Do you recognize this handsome young man? No, he is not that famous X-rated star, "Buck Naked". 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 for the electric solid-body bass. 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.
NED'S 1ST PROTOTYPE GL2 HARDTAIL #P-1 - $24995
The rarest bird of the Steinberger guitar world. The first prototype (pre-production) GL2 6-string guitar that Ned Steinberger built. This is the earliest (to our knowledge) P-series model GL2 guitar 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.
GL4T #7005 - $10995
Yes, being the world's HeadlessUSA specialists on Steinberger guitars, we've had quite the number of original custom color models pass through our doors over the years. We've had multiple red, white, and blue examples, but this is the first time that we've ever offered a yellow GL4T. The "back-story" that we obtained from a former factory employee is that this guitar was manufactured for Sid McGinnis, who was the guitarist for the David Letterman show. The "reason" that Sid declined owning it seems to have been that it wasn't the proper shade of yellow that he had had in mind. The guitar was instead shipped to a "notorious" dealer in Danbury, CT, where it was sold to a young lady who has owned it from new. A true one-owner guitar!
GM1TA #N12404 - $7995
Amazing. To our knowledge, a one of a kind factory Steinberger Custom Shop GM1TA. From the original owner and never really played. A dark see-thru charcoal finish. Multi-ply body binding with figured maple top and gold logo.
GL2-12 #7336 - $7495
The finest quality and most accurate 12-string electric guitar ever built, this Steinberger GL2-12-string has every design feature that the serious player requires. The incredible Trac-Tuner uses a single knob to tune all 12 strings. Each saddle has independent intonation and height adjustment...
GK4T #NT14375 - $7495
A super-rare and near-mint example of the Klein/Steinberger arrangement. This is a perfect example of the Kleinberger in a beautiful white finish...
XL2 G.C.-01 - $6495
An incredibly rare and unique original factory yellow Steinberger XL2 bass in near-mint condition. The backstory on this bass is fascinating. Notice the GC-01 serial number. Inquiring minds want to know.
GL2T #5211 - $5995
It doesn't get any better. An original Newburgh, USA-built, fully restored Steinberger GL2T. A gorgeous guitar in near-mint condition.
GL3T #3566 - $6495
A virtually impossible to find example of a very early white Steinberger GL3T Version #1 TransTrem guitar. Original with white pushbuttons and L2 type control knobs. A gorgeous guitar in stunning condition.
XL2 #7377 - $5195
A super rare original factory red Steinberger XL2 bass in near-mint condition. Custom color Steinberger basses are extremely rare and collectible.
L2LF BASS #003 - $4795
An amazing Steinberger L2LF (lined fretless) bass. Serial number 003!!! This is one of the very first production L2's ever built. This L2 lined fretless bass has some features that totally differentiate it from the later versions. The early EMG pickups with large EMG logos and the "TV" type control knobs.
GS7ZA #N13365 - $4795
Now available at HeadlessUSA, an extremely rare and original USA-built white Steinberger GS7ZA guitar. A very scarce Steinberger model, and finding a near-mint all-original Newburgh, NY- built example like this one is amazing.
XL2 #3943 - $3495
A beautiful USA-built early XL2 bass in a black finish. This was the final "rendition" XL2 with the newly added flip-down leg-rest..
XM2 #N11051 - $2795
An amazing find. This is the only example that we've ever seen of an original Steinberger factory-built bass with a maple colored fingerboard. We "assume" that this was an experimental build to evaluate the public response to a maple fretboard on a Steinberger bass. If you want the rarest Steinberger bass added to your collection, this would be the one to own..
