Steinberger presents the new GT-PRO “Quilt Top” Deluxe Outfit featuring the classic Steinberger body design with a beautiful “Quilt Top” in Trans Blue, Trans Red, or Wine Red Gloss finishes. The Steinberger GT-PRO “Quilt Top” includes the patented 40:1 Ratio Direct-Pull tuning and locking R-Trem™ tremolo systems plus a 3-pc Hard Maple neck with adjustable truss rod for an incredible sounding guitar that’s practically indestructible. The GT-PRO “Quilt Top” Deluxe Outfit is part of the new Steinberger Spirit Collection and includes a deluxe gigbag.
Revolutionary Steinberger Design
There was nothing like Ned Steinberger’s guitars and basses when they were first introduced in 1979. Today with their lightweight and headless design, Steinberger guitars are still bold, modern instruments that offer players both a smooth tonal response and rock solid intonation at any position on the neck while giving soloists a more pronounced single note attack not available from typical guitar designs.
The GTR-PRO “Quilt Top” 6-string electric guitar features the revolutionary Steinberger design with a AAA Quilt Maple Veneer top, Basswood body, and 3-pc Hard Maple neck for an instrument that resonates as a single piece of wood. For traveling musicians, the GT-PRO “Quilt Top” is the Ultimate Travel Guitar™. At only 30.25” long, its ergonomic design makes it easy to take anywhere including overhead airline compartments. And thanks to its headless construction and 3-pc Hard Maple neck, the GT-PRO isn’t as sensitive to temperature changes as typical guitars, which makes it virtually indestructible! The neck has a comfortable 1960's style SlimTaper™-D profile, 24 medium jumbo frets, and a 14” radius. A folding leg rest sits compactly on the lower bout of the guitar. A deluxe gig bag is included. An optional hard case is also available.
Patented R-Trem™ Tremolo and 40:1 Ratio Direct-Pull Systems
Steinberger necks provide players slightly extended spacing at the upper frets and can maintain incredibly accurate intonation under intense shredding. With no headstock, the GT-PRO “Quilt Top” has a Zero Nut Fret with a width of 1.625 that moves up to 2.04” at the 12th fret as the neck subtly widens to 0.42” string spacing at the bridge. The bridge has steel saddles with Steinberger’s patented R-Trem™ Locking Tremolo and 40:1 Ratio Direct-Pull tuning systems. Unlocked, the R-Trem is capable of extreme dive-bombing as well as pull-ups. Locked, the R-Trem acts like a fixed bridge. Since there is no headstock, the weight of the GT-PRO feels more balanced. Fine tuning adjustments are made at the bridge and string changes can be made fast! The Steinberger GT-PRO is set up at the factory with Steinberger DoubleBall™ 10-46 strings. Plus, with the Single Ball string adopter, you can set also set up the GT-PRO with regular strings.
The Steinberger GT-PRO “Quilt Top” is powered by Steinberger’s versatile humbucker pickups in the neck (HB-2) and bridge (HB-1) positions along with full-range Steinberger SC-1 single coil pick up in the middle position. Controls include Master Volume, Master Control, and a 5-way pickup selector.
