Ed Roman can give you numerous options for building a headless guitar or fixing
Ed Roman is a former employee of Steinberger
In 1991 I designed this Steinberger headstock model, It was called the Mega Axe
There were less than 10 made, it never saw production.
Most of them were transparent red over Mahogany
Several of them had quilted maple tops.
This design is still available today in a neck through Abstract Model

You Bought A Moses Neck Someplace Else.
We cannot install the truss rod adjusting wheel.
You will be relegated to taking off your neck every time you want to
adjust. That is a major pain.
Plus We Sell Them For $20.00 to

HERE'S THE SMALL PRINT !!
If you are an Ebay buyer,
maybe you think you can get a better deal on an instrument thru
them. We also have many instruments that don't measure up to the
standards set above.
Generally we put those inferior instruments up on Ebay through a
shill seller. We have to do something with them. They don't taste
good & eating them is pretty hard to do.
So if you find something several hundred dollars cheaper on ebay, We
can usually beat that also. However, we are not going to supply the
above caliber instruments to customers who are literally buying them
at cheaper than Ebay prices.
We are not going to provide free loaner service and our warranty is
quite a bit restricted compared to what we have printed above. Our
warranty will be much the same as you would get from most dealers
The following photos show the steps taken to
do binding by hand.
The first step after making the basic body
to route out an edge evenly around the entire body.
Here is a photo of the finished route, basically you simply
build a small even step all the way around
This takes patience a steady hand and a lot of time.
The Ivoroid binding is then wrapped
carefully all the way around the body
Here are a couple of different angles so
that you can see how the creme colored binding is applied
The Paua Abalone shell pieces are about 1/3
of an inch long
They are all glued in between the wood and the outer binding one at a time.
This was done in our shop many years ago,
when we used to have more time to take photographs
This job is simpler than many of the ones we do today!!!
