Re: Klein questions for klein, and guitar players

I have two Steinberger GM7T's w/ graphite necks and one Klein with 
the Rosewood neck. All have TransTrems. The Klein is _WAY_ more 
guitar than the Steinbergers.

Ed Roman always struck me as a shameless self-promoter and price gouger.

Hold out for the Klein. If you find a good Steinberger GM7T used in 
the interim grab it until your Klein is done. You can always use a 
second TransTrem for spare parts.
