About This Listing

Super-rare original USA-built GM2T in black. This guitar was fully restored/refurbished by Jeff Babicz. Jeff dressed and mirror-polished the frets, and serviced the electronics. He rebuilt the TransTrem with new bearings and spring and burnished the roller saddles, so the tremolo now transposes correctly and returns to zero accurately. The TransTrem works as advertised. Best tremolo on Earth. Bar none.

The GM-series was the most successful of the wooden body models. This is the version #2 body that was first built at the end of the Newburgh era. Body became much more sculpted and much lighter. Two EMG humbuckers and a three-way switch, volume and tone. Very straightforward. This guitar does show a few "battle scars" (see photos) but is structurally perfect and a super-fine player. Slight finish checking on top and typical crackling at the neck/body joint. If you're seeking an untouched and mint museum piece, this is not your guitar. But if you're a serious player and you want to own and play one of the finest guitars ever produced, you will be thrilled to death.

Your guitar will ship in a new HUSA gig-bag, with TT arm, strap, picks, and an extra set of calibrated strings. Premium hard-shell cases are also available. An amazing instrument and a player's dream. Purchasing your Steinberger from a trusted source is critical when purchasing these ultra-sophisticated instruments. See our feedback. Questions?
