Some people around here (Justin, who helped me identify this as legitimate) like Steinbergers, and I myself have been a fan of them for a while; but have never played, nor seen on in person, be it legitimate M/GM/Oar, a Spirit model. HOWEVER, on Sunday night, I was perusing various company websites search for a new guitar as a present for myself (and because I had all this graduation money burning a hole in my pocket). I decided "why not" and search to see if any new Steiny results had come in lately.
And what did I find? Why, a blue Steinberger GM4-R had come up for sale from Guitar Center, and at a fucking STEAL of a price for a 7/10 condition!
Unfortunately, by the time I found this elusive guitar, it was past their closing time, so not only could I not buy it, but neither could anyone else at least. So time goes by, and throughout the night I'm checking in on her, already calling it "mine."
NEXT DAY! I wake up, do some intarwebs stuff, and Around one o'clock I called up the GC in PA and said "I noticed you just got a Steinberger in for sale, I'd like to purchase it" and the deed was done. Gave them my name, address, and billing info and 2 days later voila - it's at my doorstep!
ON TO THE PICTURES!
Dat pickup configuration
What I THOUGHT was missing from the guitar, but was merely just hiding from the flash
Inside/low-light it's more of an aqua-esque color scheme, but in natural lighting the blue color REALLY pops out, hence why I took some pics before it got too late and had to wait until tomorrow.
Worst part of this was I was getting ready to run some errands and then it miraculously showed up at my doorstep without me noticing a thing I was already in gym clothes and DID have to mail out another guitar so I couldn't just drop everything and play it like I wanted. BUT ALAS, she's mine and none of you can have her, so back off!
Looks really ace
