    Any Steinberger players?

    Hey @eddie101 Here is a picture of the NS. There was a bass version as well that received great reviews. This isn't mine but I have the same violin colored model. You may recognize the headstock from other Steinberger instruments. It's a solidbody but weighs in 6lb range.

    Any Steinberger players?

    I play a Bolin NS. A guitar built by John Bolin and designed by Steinberger with input from Steve Miller. It's a very easy guitar to play with a nice range of tones.

    Lentz Question

    I've found that there is a short break-period for new Lentz guitars as well. I'm not sure it I'm breaking the guitar in or the guitar is breaking me in.

    Steve Miller proves he's rock and roll...

    I don't disagree with Steve Miller but I wonder if he says something similar to his Bohemian Grove buddies.

    You know what guitar is amazing? (show your Lentz TELES; no strats allowed!)

    Not a great picture but below are mine. The one on the left has a one piece neck and the one on the right (The Punk) is double bound and has the same maple on the back as the front. Note the transitional headstock on the black tele.

    Stevens vs. Gustavsson for "the LP thing"

    The descriptions people use to describe these high end LPish guitars make them sound more like a 335. That's fine and maybe they do sound like a great 335 but shouldn't a LP have more of a midrange emphasis with a hint of compression?

    New Lentz Just Finished

    Very nice! I like the Lentz bursts. He gets this little wispy thing going on with the colors in the corners.
