  1. It looks nothing like my L2 . The bridge , knobs , pickups , battery cover , and it looks like wood at the back , not graphite . I think you got dudded . Hope it didn't cost you an arm and a leg . rick
  2. There maybe something like this already thought up , but heres what i use to slide the blocks when required . Especially when the strings are in tune and its tight .
  3. HA HA !!! hi there bernd ,There are busier places i agree , but it stays on the page longer , and its good to come here to ponder the silence . THANKS !!!!
  4. Hi there appreciators of steinberg basses and guitars , My L2 E string saddle block ive noticed has small indents through the tightening and loosening of the 2 lock screws that hold the 4 blocks in place . This is to be expected over time and the age of the bass . So whilst doing the intonation and getting it right , i find it moves slightly after ive tightened up the screws due to the surface of the E BLOCK not being smooth . Would lightly sanding the surface of the block be the solution OR simply swapping it with one of the other blocks be the way to go ? Precisely made to fit as they are sanding may not be the way to go ive thought despite the small indents made by the screws . Anyone encountered this minor problem before ?
  5. Hi bernd, Mine too only have a small sticker with "EMG-HB" , so for all i know they could be SS as the bass serial says "sullivan st" which was a very early location of steinberger sound , but i doubt it as it looks original "thumbnail attch" Thats interesting that yours are SS with a resin base . Under that brass plate lurks the mighty pickups wrapped in a paper thin brass layer . It came loose and needed to be stabilised , hence making a slight noise . Id imagine that wouldnt happen with it sealed in resin . And yep it is a bit of a garden gnome forum . rick
  6. Hi ! ive always wanted to ask these questions so anyone who knows , im keen to hear . Ive read that the early L,series basses came out with SS pickups with a brass plate underneath . Then ,,, i believe the HB brass plated one supersede the SS ? Mine has the brass plate with a "HB sticker" attached , and after that the HB pickups had a resin base when the XL series were produced . If the HB superseded the SS (prior to the later resin filled emg,s installed in the XL,s , why do some XL,s have SS pickups ? am i wrong thinking the early SS & HB,s were more sought after than the later resin packed emg,s ? So were the SS,s & HB,s left overs when XL,s were produced ? and they installed those brass plated ones in XL,s as well ? Sorry !!! too many questions here , but not having played a steiny with SS PUPS which of the SS & HB has the more defined sound in anyones opinion eg: definition,clarity,response,with warmth and clean sound ? Incidently ! im over the moon with the sound i get at high and low volumes . Its clean with definition , so i was wondering how much different an SS sound would rate . I hope my quiery makes sense & thanks for your reading time .
  7. Bernd , its a good thing to know for intonation that can be done . In the one i have the blocks have not been changed , as the E block only has the bridge lock screw indents on 1 side . The rest are all smooth . cheers
  8. Hi steiny forum , I was looking at a L2 bass the other day and couldnt help noticing the (blocks) the strings rest on in the saddles were in reverse to what mine are . As L2 owners are aware , there is a POINT where the string rests on with a groove either side(one smaller than the other) . Is there a set rule to how these blocks should face ? and when removed for cleaups etc, should they be returned to the same string & not get mixed up . thanks all; fevitz
  9. Tom i agree , and bob , ill try fret doctor on my other wood necked basses .
  10. Hi be,em my email ; ricksta2011@hotmail.com

    i wasnt sure if you hadit

  11. Hi , i know this sounds like a stupid question and i dont blame anyone who lets me know this , but has anybody tried repairing a graphite chip or a scratch using the wifes or girlfriends UV nail gelcoat under a UV light (black of course)? Ive heard it sets real hard .
  12. love the L2 steinberger . Its compact and p laying it strapped on is easy and comfortable with the pivotal strap brace screwed on the back . the neck took a bit to get used to . Sustain goes forever and the original EMG HB p/ups are clean and warm with a vol controler . Tone is simple and effective .

  13. Hi , ive read that the best way to clean the fretboard of a graphite neck is with WD-40 . I was wondering after this is applied then wiped off , would a lemon oil application be advisable (and also wiped off) prior to putting strings on it ? Ive been using a fret polishing cloth for the gunk build up , then used lemon oil , thoroughly wiped it off after leaving it an hour or so before restringing it . It makes the neck look like a sheet of glass . If anyone has any other tips on cleaning i would be very glad to hear them . thanks !
  14. I had the 4 string synapse . Adjusted the trimpots , changed strings , played around with the svt-3 for hours , just could not get the sound i wanted . Sold it ! bought an 82 L2 , never looked back .
  15. I would like to add , i played last sat nte . I took my stingray LTD and the steinberger . Ive got the ampeg svt 3 + a pair of 4 x 10 cabs . Both basses absolutely nailed it as i swapped over through the night , but the S B got thumbs up for sustain ,warmth, and fret sound consistency . looking forward to it again . rick
