For customers residing in Japan
STATUS GRAPHITE S-2 made in 1986, early model in stock!

This is a very rare early model of S-2, which has the beauty and aura of a chemical reaction between two seemingly mismatched but opposing materials, combining exotic woods with carbon graphite, which at that time was beginning to be used for instruments as an advanced material.

The top is Bubinga, which also has a beautiful grain, the cherry veneer is bright red on point, and the back is ash, which is as fast and galloping in sound as graphite.

The headpiece, the most iconic part of the instrument, is made of carefully finished brass and can be used with either double-ball or single-ball strings.
The bridge and tuners on the other side are also made of finely finished brass, and the old logo on the bridge plate seems to indicate the difference in status.
The back panel is also made of brass, indicating that more time and effort were put into finishing it than in recent years.
The battery box also has traces of a square sticker, indicating that it was handled by Kanda Shokai, the Japanese distributor at that time.

There is some paint peeling on the neck side above the frets, but other than that, there are no other paint problems.

The circuit had been removed and a new one installed, but the original circuit was intact, so we succeeded in putting it back in. The volume pot was replaced, but the sound is still the same as the original.
The Green Machine Technology (GMT) logo is on the top of the knob and on the pickup cover, which is also a characteristic of the early models. (Only the volume knob is missing the original.)

The headless design and the revolutionary use of graphite as a material, etc., made the Steinberger and the Status Graphite a classic instrument that has moved the history of electric basses.
The Status Graphite S-2 is a masterpiece that has moved the history of electric basses together with Steinberger.
This is a great opportunity to buy one!
