    I think they had some quality control issues at first. Does anyone know anything about them these days?

    Are you talking about the Steinberger?

    Yeah, the Steinberger Synapse. I had a Steinberger in the 80's and sold it during the booming 90's. Started playing teles. Now I kinda miss the old girl but I'm not going to spring for what a GL goes for these days!

    I was just wondering if the Synapse has a lot of the qualities of the first GLs. I really like the idea of a hardtail Steinberger!

    I've heard they had some real problems with quality control at first. Hopefully that has been corrected. I've never seen or played a Synapse but they look interesting on paper.

    Eagerly waiting, Srini. Is it the transscale or regular?

    The regular - I need it for travel, since my job takes me on the road almost constantly; the TranScale would defeat the purpose.

    The latest bad news is that Musician's Friend is back-ordered, and can't give me a delivery date.

    A friend has one, and I played it..didn't really like it, and it looked defective,(bad fret job) he also has a used old Hohner Steinberger imitation, that sounded better, and played better, and you can get them really cheap these days..
    Just my opinion.

    I looked at the Synapse and decided I much prefer my Steinberger Spirits with upgraded pickups, but then, I never liked EMGs.
