    just as addition to this. i did try to polish up the finish and didn't have much luck, so i have bought a jar of gibson scratch remover polish from a guy in the u.s. on ebay. you tell him the make of guitar and he supplies the appropriate polish. it says that it may take a few goes to see an improvement.......well i've done it twice now and it certainly has worked on the orange peel effect and its gleaming its head off....so thats where its gone..ha.ha..seriously though...its looking 100 times better and i'm well pleased....trev.

    hi eagle and thanks lads.....what a helpful bunch you all are... i thought i'd bought a pile of bits and pieces, but the more you tell me the better i feel. as for the finish someone on ebay is selling jars of magic gibson guitar polish that removes scratches and makes it like new again....well....i'll let you know if it works....thanks again..trev.

    hi again bernd...you are a star...how did you upload the pics?....a close look shows uneven wear on the screws so that must be because they are protruding a bit.... what about the battery, is it usual to be under the control cover....trev.

    hi bernd. now that is a version without the plate and with four screws and ferrules which is the same as my spirit. but the gm has a plate and five screws, also this one shows a battery box. mine has the battery under the control cover. mm..curious.....perhaps mine has been made up..trev.

    hello mate... never heard of adding a neckplate before but sounds interesting. the serial no is a TN so i am told that shows thats it was made in nashville. no marks on the plate but it is black. one of the screws has a slight churn to it so someone must have had it off of tried to tighten it. i haven't touched it myself. i have looked at loads of pics but they never seem to show the back of the neck. i love it like it is. it plays and sounds great. i'm just trying to establish if it is original like that....many thanks...trev.

    ok, thanks for that. i was worried in case it had been altered. funny that such a well designed guitar has a less than satisfactory neck plate.... as for the body i thought a good polish would do it but i wasn't sure what the finish was... ok then thanks again and to finish of......this had got to be the best guiar i have EVER played......trev.

    hi bernd..not sure how to upload pics on here but, the screws go in straight and the backplate follows the contour of the back, so one edge of the srews are not flush..is that normal? the finish sort of looks like someone has spayed hair laquer on it... sort of a bit motley...probably a good polish would do it but not sure what to use. after the quality of the spirits i would have thought that this would have been perfect. or is it because its a teenager...13 years...trev.

    hello from trev in the uk. this is my first post and i am happy to be part of the headless family....i have always loved the steinberger design....wether they be hohners or spirits the quality has always been good and a pleasure to play. but having only ever had the r-trem on these which is great anyway. i wanted to try the s-trem and i recently bought through ebay a usa gm7sa. well its 13 yrs old and it cost me a grand, it has a bit of wear but i didn't expect it to be new. it feels great and sounds wonderful but i have a couple of quality niggles.....why do the neck bolts not sit flush in the plate? and having a lovely maple striped top why does it have an orange peel look to the finish. can it be polished out?..... is it cellolose?.... ok then thanks for reading this...be lucky...trev.
