Rare 1980s Steinberger Carbon Fiber L Series GL-2 12 String Electric Guitar

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.


Steinberger L Series GL 2 headless 12 string this vintage Steinberger 12 string guitar has serial # 2813 on the body blank, indicating the body blank was manufactured at the Steinberger Newburgh location circa May 1985. I am not 100% sure if this was originally built as a 12 string or not, apparently many Steinbergers have been scavenged for parts for decades now and rebuilt into various configurations, this is common knowledge with L Series Steinbergers parts and models easily interchangeable, and this GL 2  12 string may in fact have started as a Trans Trem body and was converted or modded to the GL 2 12 string. Not a lot of the rare and HTF revolutionary 12 string Trac Tuners were made at most maybe 100-150 at the most according to Steinberger, the SB Trac Tuner precisely and easily tunes each string independent one at a time.  This Steinberger GL 2 12 string is one piece body/neck construction from an epoxy resin with carbon and glass fiber. The fretboard is not ebony wood but phenolic material, with 24 frets in new condition with dot inlay markers. The Steinberger patented leg rest is intact and the hardware is black, with one vol and one tone knobs and the pups are EMG active. This vintage SB GL2 12 string guitar is somewhere between very good, to more accurate described excellent cosmetic condition for a 30+ year old instrument. The guitar does have a couple very minor scrapes/dings shown in pics, but nothing glaringly bad and no belt buckle rash. The neck is super straight and these vintage Newburgh SB carbon graphite fiber guitars, I do not believe are able to warp or bow much if any in the necks. This GL 2 12 string plays super easy with low action and it sounds even better. This GL 2 comes with the original SB gig bag in very nice condition, and I also have and will include a HSC custom made for this 12 string guitar. I also am including at least 32+ sets of new La Bella 12 strings designed specifically for this mid 80's Steinberger GL 2 12 string. More strings are available  This Steinberger GL 2 12 string sounds like no other 12 string guitar really, the sound is very resonating and dynamic, mostly due to the unique and ultra rigid space age material these guitars were constructed with. This vintage SB GL 2 12 string will be well securely packed and shipped, in its original gig bag and custom HSC in a sturdy U-line shipping box. Shipping through Fed-Ex Ground insured for the declared value signature delivery required, and shipping fee a bit more because the Fed-Ex insurance for higher declared value will be added.
