Steinbeck S Model Guitar
The Steinbeck S is a slimline version of my standard Steinbeck model. Like the Steinbeck it is built for light strings and is wonderfully responsive with surprising volume from the gentlest touch.
It has a gentler and smoother bass than the standard Steinbeck, with a bright, full mid range and a singing treble. Overall it is a wonderfully balanced sound,and when fitted with a Highlander gives an outstanding amplified sound.
It’s available with African or Malaysian Blackwood back and sides; figured Sitka soundboard and Wenge neck are standard. Tuners are Gotoh 510s, the best available for fine tuning and sound.
