      The features, quality, and sound of this guitar make it a real deal at this price.
      I gave this a 10 simply because the features it has at this price point is pretty incredible in a quality instrument. This isn't some entry-level-quality guitar. Good sounding H-S-M pickups AND a useable locking trem at this price is enough, but coupled with the small size, light weight, neck-through construction is irresistable.

      The neck is wonderful. It is considerably wider and flatter than I'm used to, but the frets are excellent, and well-dressed. The finish seems to be a fairly thick poly. There's no wood grain showing, but it will be a care-free and durable finish.

      The electronics are solid, although the location of the controls is going to take some getting used to, especially if you are a palm-muter. This is simply a design issue, that, given the size of the body, seems to be a moot point. The pickups and controls are also dead quiet, even the single coil, which surprised me.
      I was unsure how to rate "quality" on this because I asked myself "does this have the absolute best of every item," and the answer of course, is no. But it's also priced at only $400. I the pickups aren't quite a full and rich sounding as Gibson Burstbucker Pros. Of course, a pair of Bursbuckers would cost almost what this entire guitar sells for. Also, this guitar doesn't strive to sound like a Les Paul. Sound wise, it seems to be somewhere between an SG and an Ibanez.

      The fit and finish are excellent. There is no "oddness" or blems anywhere. The setup out of the box was, however, horrible. 10 minutes with a tuner and the included allen wrench cured that problem, and it's remained rock solid ever since, even through some fairly energetic trem activity. Due to the design, tuning is extremely stable.

      The gig bag, while adequate, is pretty lame. Not much padding is included, and the zippers seem like they won't last too many years.
      Unlike many other guitars in this price range, this one really stands out. It not only sounds good, it's rock solid, well-built, and just happens to be really fun and easy to play sitting on the couch.

      And, for those who compare this to other "travel guitars," I will note that the difference between them and this, is that this one is a REAL guitar, and is quite capable of being gigged with. It's not some bizarre cut-down skeleton that compromises on sound. It's a full-fledged rocker, that just happens to be small, comfortable, and light weight.

      I had the same problem as the previous reviewer- the bridge is mounted so poorly that it was grinding against the body. I own another Steinberger Spirit, and this guitar is worlds different. The neck is thick, REALLY thick! Also, take a really good look at the volume knob, the picture is innaccurate. Mine had the knob nearly touching the bridge pickup ring. You WILL beat your right hand to death on the volume knob. An interesting idea, not at all practical. This guitar used to be availible at another website, only there it was 25% cheaper! If you order this, you will soon wish you hadnt!

          great inexpensive guitar. stays in tune and intonation seems close out of the box. fun to play. I bought it for travel and practice in small rooms. the flatish fret board is the only draw back for me but some may like that.

            I've been playing for about 50 years and have accumulated many guitars over these years. Got a few snickers from other musician friends when I broke it out. Then I plugged it in! Tons of comments followed. All positive! No ones laughing now!!!

              Jet Black deep finish that would make Mercedes envious. All black hardware gives the guitar a modern, elegant look. Pickups played through studio monitors are neutral, with no quack, making effects do what they are supposed to. Too many pickups, as there is no place to pick except over a pickup. I will remove the single. Volume knob falls under my hand when picking which can change volume. Excellent fold out arm, when used with a straight jack cable, cradles your leg when sitting. Guitar will stand up against a wall without falling over sideways! I love it.

              Comments about Steinberger Spirit GT-Pro Deluxe Electric Guitar:

              The construction of this guitar is very good. Adjustments are very easy to make. The instrument is very comfortable to play--see the first complaint below for one exception--and stays in tune very well.

              The GT Pro is also quite good looking. Until recently, I had never seen much beauty in anything other than the classic symmetry of the Stratocaster's double cutaway. But after owing this guitar for a few weeks, I find myself appreciating its very different looks.

              As others have already noted, the GT Pro is very easy to carry around. In addition to its small size, it is extremely light.

              There are two complaints that I have with this guitar:

              1. The middle pick-up really interferes with my alternate picking

              I also own a Fender Stratocaster, with three single-coil pickups. The larger physical size of Fender allows the pickups have ample space between them. So I have never felt hampered in my alternate picking. On this GT Pro, the pickups are a little more crowded, and the middle pickup sits right below where my pick naturally positions itself. In consideration of point 2 below, I think the middle pickup should be removed entirely. It really serves no discernible purpose.

              2. The pickups are of rather low quality

              This is the main complaint. If you can swap them out for something else, I can imagine this instrument being at least as good as any American-made Fender or Gibson.

              Still, I am giving it a five-star rating, since at this price there might still be room in one's budget for an extra set of pickups.

              Periodically, I have to fly to another city for meetings, sometimes for an entire week. I missed being able to play my guitars in the evening as it helps me unwind and I need all the practice I can get. This guitar is an excellent travel guitar. It is small enough to carry-on and place in the overhead bin. I also use the Apogee jam and my iPad.

                  I am impressed with the quality of the guitar at this price point. It stays in tune and the locking lever of the tuner allows you to play it as a standard fixed-bridge guitar. The tuners needed some graphite powder which I got from pencil lead and applied it to the tuners with a fine brush. Now they are smooth and work just right! Beautiful sound, the pickups can produce that is crispy and articulated. The action was too high but it can be adjusted to taste.
