    Lou Reed Steinberger Synapse Electric Guitar Used Onstage at Glastonbury While Performing With the Gorillaz, 2010. Serial number U04091256. The guitar has a trans-red AAA quilt-maple veneer top with maple neck and features all the revolutionary designs Ned Steinberger was known for. It is complete with the original Steinberger gig bag which includes four unopened packs of Steinberger .010-.048 gauge strings, an extra 9 volt battery and cord in the accessory compartment. Reed's heavy, black-leather guitar strap is still with the guitar. There are several YouTube videos which show Reed playing this very guitar with the band Gorillaz. The video of Lou performing "Some Kind of Nature" from the band's album Plastic Beach, on which Reed collaborated, provides an excellent opportunity to see and hear the guitar close up. Honest, but not extreme play wear, and in generally excellent condition.
