State of the Art Steinbeck for sale



2018 Steinbeck S for sale

Ron Wilson is selling his 2018 Steinbeck S guitar.  He is ordering a 12 fret New World Anniversary model and feels he can’t justify keeping both.

Ron’s is the Steinbeck shown in the News Item ‘State of the art guitar – Steinbeck S’ posted 20 October 2018

Ron looks after his guitars.  A couple of weeks ago he brought the Steinbeck back to show me; it’s in perfect ‘as new’ condition and sounding great.  As well as the figured Sitka soundboard, the Malaysian Blackwood back and sides are beautiful.

It is fitted with a Highlander pickup; these are unfortunately not available now Highlander has ceased production. Ron is asking £8000 for guitar and Ivory Hiscox Artist line case.

I’m currently taking orders only for my Anniversary models, but the price for a Steinbeck with Highlander pickup in 2020 was £9074.
