Hi guys, couldn't figure out how to identify and appraise any info on these two guitars. I inherited them recently, and posted them on reverb at a high price, just so I don't sell myself short.

The link above, I beleave is a GR4. Serial number is N11991 stamped on the neck. Any info would be great (year it was made) price range that they sell for.

This one, I beleave is a model ss-2f serial is in one of the pictures linked. Any help figuring out what years these two guitars were made, and price range they sell for would be awesome. Thanks guys and Happy New Year.

Hi,

the GR4 serial puts that guitar into 1991. Hard to tell a realistic price, as current asking prices are just crazy these days. I mean: crazy. Most of them reliably prevent instruments from getting sold, though. The price range I (and probably a few other experienced Steinberger players) would consider "realistic" is $1,000-1,300 for a GR. Yours has a few chips and dents around the trem and the neck pocket, which have an impact on the price. Those around the trem might point to issues with the R-Trem which need to be fixed. The trem top coming too close to the body (bridge pickup) may happen due to bent pivot posts.

The Synapse SS2F is a more current guitar. Yours was built in November 2008, just check the serial here. The two holes between bridge and bridge pickup look like the mounting holes of a Roland GK/Midi pickup which has been removed again. My understanding of a "realistic" price would be more in the $600-700 range. I have one like yours (just without flaws and missing knobs) and once paid $500 for it. However, now it's out of production and prices are crazy… I repeat myself… ;)
