NGD Steinberger GR4

I bought it off eBay for a little over $500, the flame maple was $25 for two pieces. It's an 89/90 Newburgh, New York model, a few serial numbers apart from my current GR4. I took it to a local company that has specialized computer controlled milling machines and they're currently making violins ukuleles and such so I asked them if they could give me a hand they said they'd love to do it and will get it back to me asap. I can hardly wait. Nice new guitar day!

New top, looks good in this picture. If you have a flame/tiger stripe top you know how great they look in person compared to a photograph. I had so much enjoyment making this guitar I'm now in the process of making a matching "explorer" Steinberger.

Thanks, man. Stock electronics with the exception of the bridge pick up but I'm changing it from the Dimebucker to an Anderson H3+. The Dimebucker is too bright and I put an H3+ in my other GR4 and it rules all pick ups.
I through a Jackson J50B pick up in it last night and that worked much better than the Dimebucker. It sounds so good I might keep it in there!
