I've owned a Hohner G2T for years now - its the wood version equivalent of the original "broom" shape as its been called. As you point out, its great to travel with although they're not particularly light considering the size. That's because the whole thing is maple which isn't a particularly light weight wood.

As you know, I'm a headless guitar fan as well and will continue to explore the design as a key element in my own guitar building.

I happened to see a new G3T Hohner at a local shop earlier this week and it appears to be at least a pound lighter than my Steinberger. I suspect it's made in the same factory though; it has the same pickups, same bridge and even the same stickers "inspected by..." and "made in Korea."


What would you estimate the price of a Hohner G2T in fair to good condition today?

Not sure. Hohner is good quality and licensed Steinberger design. I've seen them in used stores like Starving Musician in the bay area for $300-400. They sometimes come up on eBay and can cost more if they are in great shape. Problem is its a pretty specialized market.


Looking for a m series steinberger guitar,no specific color or anything. where can i find one(new or used)for under $1,000.00??

Is $300.00 a reasonable price for a used steinberger spirit GU model??seen a few on ebay but I didn't know how much those go for brand new...

$300 is a pretty good price for a steinberger spirit. In fact I think I paid more than that for mine from when I originally bought it.


Is there any place in southern california that i can find a steinberger spirit model??like a music store etc... or is eBay the only place i can find an affordable steiny for myself?

Just added these pictures of a broken Steinberger Graphite neck!
Pretty abnormal site! Go to youtube and watch Ned stand on the guitar... hmmm wonder what happened?

Did you guys notice that MusicYo went out of business?!!! very sad, I bought a ton of gear from them ...about 30 guitars over the last 14 months... what now?

I'm looking to buy a used american made steinberger 6 string guitar.My email is

Trying to I.D. a travel guitar I was given years ago. Looks like a spirit design. Has 3 EMG pu's. 2 single coils and 1 humbucker, 3 toggles, vol. and tone knobs. Has BLAKE where spirit name would be.

Sounds like its a, ah, Blake guitar. Honestly, I have no idea. But it sounds like a Hohner given the 3 toggles. They are quite decent guitars, but like the Steinberger, a bit heavy. Might also be a Cort, though they have a different body shape.

Here's a photo of the Hohner:

And the Cort:

Where do I can I get string for my Steinberger Spirit? England York !

I would try online. They are more common than I have expected; I've never had a problem buying them.
