Been tempted with the Hohner version more times than I remember.

Borderline design. Look great or awful, depending on the person/artist/band.

I have the hohner version. Never really gotten on with it. Might have something to do with the awful set up and broken pickup.

Kevin Shields used one of these on Loveless because he wanted to record bass without compression. The signal stays relatively level when moving up and down the fretboard. Quite different from your typical P-Bass.

Was playing mine at the weekend. They sit funny in the strap. The centre of the body sits right down your middle line, so it pushes the 1st fret really far to your left.

So do all the "long" neck guitars, like SGs, ES335s, Dot's Yamaha SA50...

Wasn't it like Nick's guitar? I can't believe Dot smashed Nick's guitar on that jerk's head

I just reread this article about Alan Moulder's take on the recording of Loveless. He specifically mentions Kevin's use of the Steinberger bass. Really good read for any MBV fans on the board.
