There was nothing like Ned Steinberger’s guitars and basses when they were first introduced in 1979. Today with their lightweight and headless design, Steinberger guitars are still bold, modern instruments that offer players both a smooth tonal response and rock solid intonation at any position on the neck while giving soloists a more pronounced single note attack not available from typical guitar designs.

The GT-PRO "Quilt Top" 6-string electric guitar features the revolutionary Steinberger design with a AAA Quilt Maple Veneer top, Poplar body, and 3-piece Hard Maple neck for an instrument that resonates as a single piece of wood. For traveling musicians, the GT-PRO "Quilt Top" is the Ultimate Travel Guitar. At only 30.25" long, its ergonomic design makes it easy to take anywhere including overhead airline compartments. And thanks to its headless construction and 3-piece Hard Maple neck, the GT-PRO isn't as sensitive to temperature changes as typical guitars, which makes it virtually indestructible! The neck has a comfortable 1960s style SlimTaper-D profile, 24 medium jumbo frets, and a 14" radius. A folding leg rest sits compactly on the lower bout of the guitar. A deluxe gig bag is included.

Steinberger necks provide players slightly extended spacing at the upper frets and can maintain incredibly accurate intonation under intense shredding. With no headstock, the GT-PRO "Quilt Top" has a Zero Nut Fret with a width of 1.625 that moves up to 2.04" at the 12th fret as the neck subtly widens to 0.42" string spacing at the bridge. The bridge has steel saddles with Steinberger’s patented R-Trem Locking Tremolo and 40:1 Ratio Direct-Pull tuning systems. Unlocked, the R-Trem is capable of extreme dive-bombing as well as pull-ups. Locked, the R-Trem acts like a fixed bridge. Since there is no headstock, the weight of the GT-PRO feels more balanced. Fine tuning adjustments are made at the bridge and string changes can be made fast! The Steinberger GT-PRO is set up at the factory with Steinberger DoubleBall 10-46 strings. Plus, with the Single Ball string adopter, you can set also set up the GT-PRO with regular strings.

The Steinberger GT-PRO "Quilt Top" is powered by Steinberger’s versatile humbucker pickups in the neck (HB-2) and bridge (HB-1) positions along with full-range Steinberger SC-1 single coil pick up in the middle position. Controls include Master Volume, Master Control, and a 5-way pickup selector.

Great Travel guitar.

For the most part, I was looking for a simple travel guitar that had playable features that I could bring to a gig if I was to go to an open mic night. The other variety of travel guitars that I tried had really bad turning stability and most of the necks were not very comfortable on my hands. So I decided to try it, with a 30 day return warranty, Steinberger's new series of guitars with a quilt top. When I received the guitar in the mail and sought for the first time I thought this was certainly something out of the ordinary for what I would typically play. However; after plugging it in and playing for a little while I found it very easy to get comfortable with. The one thing I would recommend is to change the strings something from either LaBella, or Daddario as they are a lot softer than the Steinberger strings. With any new guitar, I would always recommend you set it up to your taste, but that didn't take as long as it would usually after reading through the directions for fixing the saddles and adjusting their height with the Allen keys provided. I would recommend this guitar for anybody that is interested in having a simple quality instrument that they wouldn't be afraid to put in an overhead bin on the plane if they travel as I do.
