Purchased this while I was looking for a 7 string ESP. Far from what I was wanting but I loved this when I saw it. These are MIJ 1980s Steinberger clones built by Tokai. Not sure how these hold up to the old real Steinbergers but this thing fucks. Rare to come across these even in Japan as they weren't very popular back in the day. Pickups are okay not quite my thing but I planned to switch them from the start. I think I spent like 450 total shipped? Hell of a guitar for 450.

What's the neck made out of? Tone-wise, I haven't been so impressed by the steinbergers I've played so far, especially the one like that model with the composite body.

I believe everything is wood except the fretboard which is evonik

What is the setup like and how does it play? I went down the 80’s headless rabbit hole for a straight month and almost grabbed something very similar

Action is low and it plays very well. Having an issue with one of the tuners but I'm attributing it to me not knowing how to set up this bridge yet. I'll play around with it more tomorrow and try to fix it

I keep talking myself out of one of those steiny clones. I gotta do one some day. It would be a fun guitar to just keep on the couch 24/7.
