    At least it has a body,
    I don't like guitars with no arm support.
    Steinbergers and Parkers- If either one came out with a guitar incorporating my fav features I 'might' start selling off my odds and ends to get one.

    I wonder if that bridge can be 'abused' a la Steve Vai, et al.

    Wow! All the other Steinberger guitars I've seen have pretty elegant body shapes. That's atrocious!

    The Steiny trems I've used have all been very abusable.

    I wonder if the trem is made of the same zinc alloy as the Transtrem II? I recall a forum member here posting up pics of a busted TransTrem, where the arm broke off.

    i wish all trems worked that way. it would be incredible. Moving all the pitches in unison. Nevermind the part where it locks into different tunings.

    Id tune it to D Standard, and then i could play everything from E Standard to C standard. It would be like the best thing ever. And forget it if they make a 7 String.

    Hmmmmm, 7 String Parker Fly with a Steiny Trans Trem.

    Sounds like id buy two!

    It is cast aluminum this time and steel where it needs it. Looks interesting .I wish it had a carbon neck and ss 6100 frets though.
