I'm looking for something I can gig on thats cheap and can take a couple mods to be decent. I also want versatility which the Synapse series has shown me is possible time and time again... The only downside is I hear the quality varies so much and the strings take forever to get from them...

I've played a Steinberger, a model made before they were bought by Gibson, and I thought it was great. Had a zero-fret for extremely low action, with no head you could dive/raise the floyd with little difference, if any, in tuning, permitting the variation, in pitch, of entire chords without worrying of going out of tune. Only complaint is the one I played was extremely heavy, and very unbalanced without a head.

I dont trust the new spirts sold on musiciansfriend. The volume knob placement is horrible and the quality has decreased a bit with the trem mounting being a bit shoddy. I would still get it over any other guitar under 1000 dollars tho just for the tuning stability and comfort.

That's an Ed Roman retop. Don't buy anything from Ed Roman.

As for the TS, don't buy that one. Get a GU Deluxe, which is basically an M series Strat-style one but made out of wood and in Korea. I bought one of the last ones made for $330 and it was good... until I realized that the neck profile was not to my liking and the guitar was tinny and undefined due to it being all maple and having a dull-sounding bridge pickup. So I swapped the neck out for a graphite one from http://mosesgraphite.com and put an 81-85 combo in there, and it rips. On top of being my favorite playing guitar right now, it's also my favorite sounding for more modern styles of music - although my other go-to guitar still trumps this one simply because it has coil tap and is made of wood entirely xD.

Long story short, it's an alright guitar with an amazing trem for $330, maybe $400, although the volume knob placement is different on that guitar than on mine. For the $450 I spent to upgrade it, it's an AMAZING guitar.

I'll post pics as soon as I get it back from my friend's house.

I am surprised to read some comments here, stating that Steinbergers are awful or look bad.

For you youngsters: back in the 80's, some guys as Sting or Mark Knopfler did use Steinberger headless bass and guitars, to perform live such albums as Ghost in the machine or Brothers in arms...

Headless guitars were very popular back then and they are truly part of guitar history.

So you boys that spend all day talking about Deans, Schecters, EMG's and .11 strings: listen to good music and REAL musicians instead of shred/nu metal clowns.

Like 95% or more of steinbergers use EMG's except for a few prototype model, Allan Holdsworth signature, and the new spirits.
