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.
