I am having unholy GAS for a Steinberger M series with a trans-trem... not sure why, but it may have to do with listening to Cynic a LOT recently
I'm glad this isn't cheaper or I would have already put a dent in my credit card again:
1988 VINTAGE STEINBERGER GM-5 TRANSTREM NEWBURGH GUITAR - eBay (item 290285644401 end time Jan-04-09 09:34:54 PST)
(actually, the trem on that looks like it's in not so great shape, so it'd have to be a LOT cheaper )
I hear ya completely. I've had trans-trem wood for ages. The two things that have stopped me are that I'm not terribly into actives or 6 strings in general.
