Here's the edited version of what I wrote
to (~FLL floydl)....
Dear Guitar player, enthusiast, collector:
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. Where do I start? In 1980 I was looking for a guitar
that would sound like all the voices that were streaming out of the recording studios all over the world.... (I
spent most of my time (99.99 %) on stage playing other peoples music, and I felt a need to be able to replicate or recreate
the "signature" licks, and voices of their music. Their songs, their instruments, etc....)
One day, as I was ambulating hither 'n' yon', I experienced a fascinating accidental discovery. At that point in time I had
more than 20 years experience playing the "bread & butter tools" of the music industry, Guild, Gibson, Gretsch, Fender,
Martin, Danelectro, Supro and other European, Japaneese, South American, and lesser imports.... and I was searching for a
guitar voice technique that would allow me to recreate those things I was hearing on the radio, and at the same time create
my own unique voice, and sound without a brace of filters, I discovered the plastic Steinberger Sound, and EMG active
pickups were the best kept secret recording engineers and know-it-alls were employing, and I could do it all on demand with
After about three months playing the Black GL2 I found my self having to lay the Steinberger down in the
middle of a song and finsh the performance with a Gibson Les Paul.... (String breakage caused me to always
keep a "backup" guitar on stage and untill the advent of Steinberger guitars, I used a Fender Telecaster, and the Les
Paul....) There is an obvious difference between the plastic guitars and the wooden ones.... The way
they handle.... Their "speed" or "action" their "tone," and "tambor" their "range" of register, and other qualities....
I shared my string breakage issues with Ned Steinberger, and he persuaded me to let him build a custom
made Steinberger for me The GL4 MIDI guitar....
These guitars were very expensive and if a musician does not have a job that justifys ownership of
superior quality "bread and butter tools" which turn out to be "collectables" he should consider the top shelf of Gibson,
Fender, and PRS guitar voices as the "benchmark."
I am sorry if my price is too high, but that is not going to change, because these instruments are
becoming more and more valuable as they age, and more desirable by the "collectors" of rare instruments....
I have included a picture of the "brains" (The Roland GM70 GR MIDI Converter, Roland MKS 50 Synth Module, and The Roland MKS 100 Sampler Module, The Ibanez
"paired proscessor" SDR 1000 Stereo Digital Reverb, and a DOD R855 Stereo four channel mixer in a road rack.) for the MIDI
guitar at this URL: http://jim19809.tripod.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/brains_midi_converter.jpg
