A New Line of Premium-Quality Steinbergers!
Nothing looks, sounds, and performs like a Steinberger and the new Synapse line is no exception. Designed by Ned Steinberger, the Synapse is a hybrid instrument combining the rigidity, clarity, strength, and definition of graphite with the warmth and beauty of wood. The result is a guitar of unparalleled beauty. Some Highlights of the Steinberger Synapse
Combo Headpiece
: the functional advantage of Steinberger's headless concept dramatically improves balance, ease of tuning, and tuning stability. All Steinberger guitars feature the patented Double-Ball tuning system that allows string changes in seconds. The Combo Headpiece accommodates both Double-Ball and Single-Ball strings. Zero-fret: By using a zero-fret instead of a traditional nut, intonation is improved. It also allows for use of varied string gauges because there is no nut slot to widen. Action at the first fret and beyond is more consistent and improved as well. Adjustable Pickup Stabilizer: Like other pickup mounting methods, Synapse pickup stabilizers allow you to raise and lower pickups to the optimum height. But unlike others, Steinberger Stabilizers keep the pickups parallel to the strings and don't allow the pickups to inadvertently tilt from side to side. They also add a clean, uncluttered look to the Synapse. CybroSonic Technology: Combines the patented Steinberger graphite U-channel with a truss rod to create an ultra-stable yet adjustable "hybrid" neck with the same definition, clarity, and focus that you've come to expect from Steinberger but with the added "warmth" of a 3-piece Maple neck. Phenolic Fingerboard: Much harder and more durable than wood, this ultra-stable composite material works in conjunction with CybroSonic technology to give the Synapse guitar consistent feel and sustain as well as brilliant harmonics with no dead spots. Each note seems to jump off the fingerboard for the dynamic "live" quality that identifies the Steinberger sound. Strap hook: the patented strap hook allows the Synapse to hang in the optimum position on your body while maintaining perfect balance. And Much More!

Comments about Steinberger Synapse ST-2FPA TranScale Custom Electric Guitar:

I was absolutely amazed at the comfort of this guitar. The 81/85s ROCK. The neck is perfect. I thought the body might be small, but that is not the case. The swing out leg rest work perfectly. The transcale capo was a little loose out of the box, but easy fix.
