If you want the rarest Steinberger bass added to your collection, this would be the one to own. This beauty was just restored and set-up by Jeff Babicz, who was the head of production at the Steinberger Sound factory in Newburgh, NY.

Jeff's work is legendary, and his abilities in Steinberger restoration are stunning. This bass in now in near-mint condition. Since all of this restoration work has been completed, this incredible bass should need no any further attention for the next 25 years.
