There was nothing like Ned Steinbergers guitars and basses when they were first introduced in 1979. Today, with their lightweight and headless design, Steinberger basses are still bold, modern instruments that offer players both a smooth tonal response and rock solid intonation at any position on the neck. The Steinberger XT-25 Standard 5-string Bass Outfit features the revolutionary Steinberger Bass design with a 5th string tuned to Low B, a Basswood body, and a 3-piece Hard Maple neck that resonate as a single piece of wood. For traveling musicians, the XT-25 5-string is the Ultimate Travel Bass.At 38.5 long and only 8.2lbs, its ergonomic design makes it easy to take anywhere including overhead airline compartments. And thanks to its headless construction and 3-piece Hard Maple neck, the XT-25 isnt as sensitive to temperature changes, which makes it virtually indestructible! The neck has a comfortable 1960's style SlimTaper-D profile, 24 medium jumbo frets, a 34 scale length, and a 14 radius. A folding leg rest sits compactly on the lower bout of the body.
A deluxe padded gigbag is included. An optional hard case is also available. Steinberger basses are renowned for their exceptional tone and intonation at all positions.
With no headstock, the XT-25 5-string has a Zero Nut Fret with a width of 1.625 that moves up to 2.40 at the 12th fret as the neck subtly widens to 0.64 string spacing at the bridge. The Patented 40:1 Ratio Direct-Pull tuning system and Patented DoubleBall Bass Bridge with steel saddle provide exceptional stability and sustain.
Without a traditional headstock, the weight of the XT-25 feels more balanced than a typical electric bass even with an added 5th string. Fine tuning adjustments are made at the bridge and string changes can be made fast! The Steinberger XT-25 is set up at the factory with Steinberger DoubleBall (45-65-85-105-128) strings. Plus, with the Single Ball String Adopter, you can set also set up the XT-25 with any bass string of your choice.
