    That’s different.
    Here it is. Hasn't even been out of the case for 5 years. Heavy as hell, too.

      It has a lock, so you can just lock it down. But why design something so bad, anyway?

        I'd want to play Summer Nights by Van Halen on that. But I can't...LOL. The beauty of the trem is the ability to move it and keep chords completely in tune while doing so. That's what Eddie played Summer Nights on. The trem is locked up to a higher pitch and when he dives down before the rest of the band kicks in is when it drops back to standard tuning. A quite neat contraption really.

          Well, the TransTrem, which is what Eddie used, hasn't been available for years. That TransTrem is one hell of an engineering feat, and the trem on this Spirit is nowhere like it.

            Just circling back to say my brother really likes his Steinberger. He loves the neck and says it’s light years beyond his old Yamaha. His favorite pickup position is neck humbucker plus middle single coil.
            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.

              That is cool that he likes it. The student I have loves his, but I still don't like it compared to the Synapse. But maybe it is just a personal thing.

                Seriously Dave? It's a light guitar!

                I say Jazz set, with a hot rails middle, split.

                  Yeah, but it is worth like $200. The bridge and pickups are terrible. 24 frets, big neck. All of that is a 'no' to me.
