Instantly transposing tremolo and coil tapping pickups with the other Steinberger features you love!

The Steinberger ZT3-Custom TransTrem Electric Guitar has a flamed maple top for killer looks, and a transposing tremolo system to make instant tuning changes on stage. You can transpose up or down a whole step, in half step increments, to give you five different on-the-spot tunings. Add to this Steinberger's brilliant design features such as the tune-it-once direct-drive double-ball bridge and graphite-reinforced neck with ultrafast phenolic fingerboard and you've got a truly advanced and infinitely playable electric guitar.

The ZT3 Custom guitar has USA-made humbuckers that offer volume, tone and individual coiltapping on both pickups so you can choose a variety of thick humbucker and bright, bell-like tone combinations.

Improved intonation from a zero fret. Unique Steinberger headpiece improves balance, ease of tuning, and tuning stability while the ZT3-Custom's patented Direct-Drive double-ball bridge lets you change strings in seconds then tune up once and not have to tune again until you change strings.

Comments about Steinberger ZT3 Custom TransTrem Electric Guitar:

Prior to playing the ZT3 my favorite Steinberger was the ST-2FPA. Now its hands down the ZT3! Although the Transcale guitars hold their own this beast has some amazing features and is certainly the coolest looking of them all (subject to personnel opinion). The TransTrem is shift on the fly and quite amazing. All in all its a real winner! I recommend it,
