  1. You will have to take the strings off and take the R-Trem apart and look to see if the spring tab is bent. Also check to see if the posts are bent. You may want to look at this video or look for videos on youtube for help if you have never taken one apart.
  2. What makes you think this is a Steinberger?
  3. Make sure the saddle is not tilted any and try reseating the string like you mentioned. Very important to have the string contact the saddle properly.
  4. The big knob is the main spring that will adjust the term to float in tune. When you tune the guitar it should be locked, when you unlock the trem, if it goes flat you tighten the big knob, if it goes sharp you loosen the big knob. You adjust until when you unlock the term it will float in tune with when it is locked.
  5. Just push them forward or backward as needed. The string it the only thing holding them in place once you loosen the set screw. Don't know why it posted twice and I can't find a way to delete it. SORRY!

  7. You will be looking for an R-Trem arm. That may help. Go to a big music store and see if they have box of assorted trem arms in the parts department. The R-Trem just presses in and is held by nylon side insert. You may be able to wrap a threaded arm with teflon tape and use that too. Good Luck!
  8. Looks like a pre Gibson (not necessarily better) GM7T.
  9. Yes, an R-Trem, that alone is worth $80-$150. Does it have a wood neck? tI most likely does. Most comparable to the Steinberger Spirit line. The information that Bernd provided is accurate. Don't think there is any collector value but it probably would make someone a great travel guitar.
  10. Probably a three or four hundred dollar guitar. More than likely it has an R-Trem. What do you need to know?
  11. You are probably looking at a value of $2500 to $3500 depending on overall condition. If the pictures you linked to are of the guitar I would guess you could be looking at a value closer to the $3500 range.
  12. Sorry, your pictures are so poor that I could not see the screws in the back. It looked like a solid body in the picture but once I zoomed in I could see some blurry screws on the back that hold the face plate on. You are right it looks like a GL. not a GLB. So it will bring a lot more than what I told you. Here is a link to a group of users that can give you more info.. Steinberger at Yahoo
  13. Sorry, after looking at the picture of the back again I can see the screws that hold the face plate on so the following info is not accurate. This looks like one of the last GLBs that MusicYo sold that had the T-Trem not normally found on this model. When MusicYo was shutting it's doors they were dumping the last bit of inventory and put guitars together with what they had on hand. I am guessing they were probably out of S-Trems that this model is usually paired with. I think they sold for $995 at the time which was a great deal because most T-Trems are valued around $1000 by themselves. You could probably get over $1000 for it if the term is in good shape. This model was not one that was particularly popular because it was a lower end version of the GL that was carbon fiber and the original Steinberger model that caused the guitar world to sit up and take notice of the company. Hope this info helps!
