25 most iconic guitars ever
Steinberger L-Series (1980)
Originally designed as a lightweight bass guitar, the Steinberger’s headless design – along with the keytar – was rocking the ‘80s zeitgeist and a six-string was quick to follow. It appeared everywhere for a decade, then disappeared. Probably because of the elusive double ball-end strings that were a chore to hunt down.
Everyone had one in the 80s. That was the rules. We’ve gone for chameleonic strummer David Bowie. Just because of the matching '80s fringe.
