Today is Saturday, November 5, 2005, and finally after more than 15 months, and 485 people corresponding with me since I started this project, I have had an inquiry about The White Steinberger GL4TA-GR/W Guitar serial #: 4468, it's "....BRAINS...." and the 24 pin digital interface cable....

I recieved eMail from someone (~FLL floydl) who knows how to make MIDI music.... A real guitar synthesist has written to me, and he (~FLL floydl) has asked about my "MIDI Converter...."
I responded to him by saying that I'd try to setup this page by the end of this week dedicated to his question....
He (~FLL floydl) asked: "Do I have the MIDI Converter for The White Steinberger GL4TA-GR/W Guitar serial #: 4468, and the 24 pin connector (Digital Interface.) cable?" In my reply to him I told him that I do have the 24 pin cable that connects the guitar to the brain....                     I forgot to mention the fact that I do have the remote control pedals for controlling the brain, synthesizers, samplers, efx, and other MIDI keyboards, patch bays, and devices....

741 days later, On Tuesday, October 24, 2006 I sold both Steinberger guitars to a new friend of mine in Lexington, Massachusetts. The effort to sell these instruments required almost four years (1,461 days.) of maintaining a high profile on the Internet. I sold the guitars to a new friend by the name of Glen....

We (Glen and I.) lost none of the cash that was used in this transaction to eBay or PayPal!

It's . . . .

The Roland MIDI Brains in a Road Rack.
GM 70 Converter, MKS 50 Synth, MKS 100 Sampler....

At the top of the road rack is the Ibanez SDR 1000 Stereo Digital Reverb, under it is the Roland GM-70 GR MIDI Converter, followed by the Roland MKS-50 Jupiter synthesizer module, followed by the Roland MKS-100 Digital Sampler/Sequencer Module. At the bottom of the road rack is the DOD Stereo Mixer R855.
All of this equipment is in NEW Pristine un-blemished condition. No abrasions, smudges, scratches, dits, dings, dents, flaws, finger prints, nothing on the front of these modules to betray their age, or use.... They look today like they did when I purchased them. Everything works flawlessly.

This photograph proves that I'm using a cellphone to take pictures.... The camera feature on my phone needs work.... This poor picture is the best my camera can do....

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 the GL2!

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:
