About This Listing

Rare original USA-built GM7TA in sunburst. Super-clean and fully restored/refurbished by Jeff Babicz. Jeff re-fretted and mirror-polished the frets, and also serviced the electronics. He rebuilt the TransTrem with new bearings and spring and burnished the roller saddles, so the TT tremolo now transposes correctly and returns to zero accurately. The TransTrem works as advertised. Best tremolo on Earth. Bar none. Common finish crack at neck/body joint. See photo. Not structural.

The GM-series was the most successful of the wooden body variants. This is the version #2 body that was first built at the end of the Newburgh era and continued in Nashville. This body became much more sculpted and much lighter. Two EMG 89 humbuckers with coil-tap and an SA between them. HAZ active EQ version #2 with separate treble and bass, boost and cut, for much greater tone-range. The incredible one-piece carbon-fiber neck. In gorgeous condition and will include a new HUSA gig-bag, TT arm, strap, and an extra set of calibrated strings. Premium hardshell cases are also available. An amazing instrument and a solid investment. If you've never played a properly restored Steinberger, you are missing one of the finest guitars ever built. Purchasing your Steinberger from a trusted source is critical when investing in these sophisticated instruments.
