    I have moderate bilateral hearing loss in the upper midrange and lower treble. I tend to think sounds are quieter, darker, and bassier than they probably really are.

    The would be OK $150 instruments, and that is as nice as I can be.

        Actually, that is one thing they got right. Tuning is magnificent, and vastly improved over most guitars with traditional headstocks. The rest of the guitar (especially the pickups) are just not great.

          Well we are pickup changers by nature of where we are

          What pickups does one think would sound good in there

          I was just looking at those myself last night

          Looks like a killer travel guitar

              If the neck is good, changing out the body to something better is pretty straightforward.

              I built a bubinga body for a client who had a carbon fiber neck from Steinberger.

                If someone made a new body for a $399 Steinberger, I would sue them.

                  At least you would have a pattern
                  You could make the new shape less boxy

                    I’d be a lot more likely to replace the pickups than to replace the body.

                      This was back in the late 80's. He paid full price for the neck and TransTrem as I remember.

                        A Custom Custom in the bridge, certainly- remember it is made of maple. But there won't be a good neck pickup as this guitar has 24 frets and maple construction, and that isn't a great formula for a good neck pickup sound. Also, the bridge is a clunky shadow of what should be in there. They should have just made it a hardtail.

                              I might try a ‘59A2 in the neck.
