|Band or ensemble:||Last Exit / The Police / Sting|
|Time gear used:||1982 - YYYY|
On 1982-04-07 (and probably still on 1982-04-12) the Steinberger sticker on the bass is still intact. Lynn Goldsmith photos from (probably) 1982-04-18 reveal that the sticker is only partially there now. By 1982-04-21 the sticker was completely gone.
According to a Steinberger fan website Sting's own black L2 model with the serial # 430 was manufactured in 9/82 and sent to him shortly afterwards directly from the factory ("allegedly owned by Sting"). Photos up to 1982-09-05 still show Sting with Andy's bass with the missing Steinberger sticker.
Quotations and trivia
Andy Summers still owns such bass that features the Steinberger logo (either it's been renewed or it's a different bass).
