Steinberger is a series of distinctive electric guitars and bass guitars, designed and originally manufactured by Ned Steinberger.
The name "Steinberger" can be used to refer to either the instruments themselves or the company that originally produced them.
Current official all-wood instruments are sold under the Spirit by Steinberger brand.
The Spirit comes in two versions, the Deluxe and Standard.
As such, it required double-ball end strings in the same way as the Steinberger originals.
Hohner continues to offer the G3T Steinberger licensed guitars, which have been available since "the late 1980s".
The Bantam did not require the double-ball end strings of the Steinberger.
The best-known Steinberger design is the L-series instrument, sometimes described as shaped like a broom, boat oar, or cricket bat.
The new instruments are part wood and part graphite composite, and are not interchangeable with the original Steinberger guitars.
