The Steinberger Spirit XT-2 Standard Outfit Electric Bass Guitar in Black is nothing like any other bass you've ever seen. From the distinctive headless neck to the steadfast 40:1 gear ratio machine heads, everything about this bass is crafted with acute attention to detail. Performance, comfort, and reliability are inherent in the XT-2's design, and once you've played one, you'll immediately understand what Steinberger's are all about.
The Spirit XT-2 inherits the award-winning body design of the Steinberger XL Series, with a distinctive shape that features a headless neck with patented Double-Ball tuning system. The lack of a headstock may be unusual visually, but it in no way impairs the precise response of the guitar. The body is crafted using a three-piece maple neck, which extends through the entire length of the body. A pair of maple wings are fitted either side of the neck, establishing the rectangular body shape. The benefit of this neck-thru design means that the strings are given the freedom of a generous scale length to resonate fully and the sustain on offer is truly astounding. The strings meet the body via a patented double-ball bridge with direct-pull tuners that boast an exceptional 40:1 gear ratio. You can rest assured that once you tune up, none of the strings are going to slip out of tune.
Fitted to the body is a pair of Steinberger humbuckers in the middle and bridge positions, which deliver a smooth tonal palette for you to play around with. Whatever style of music you perform, the XT-2 can do it all. Control over the pickups comes in the form of individual volume controls for each pickup, and a master tone knob to tailor your output.
The Spirit XT-2 is a lightweight little beauty, taking the stress and strain out of your performances. For those who are used to neck-heavy basses, the XT-2 will be a welcome change, in that the balance across the guitar is spot-on! Weighing in at a mere 7.5lbs, you have the freedom of movement on the stage that you've always dreamed of. The frets and all controls are within easy reach, so all you have to do is plug-in, tune up, and rock out. When you fancy taking a seat, Steinberger have even included a folding leg rest to make it comfortable to play whilst sitting. Supplied with a gig bag, you have no excuse to turn down the Steinberger Spirit XT-2 Standard Outfit Electric Bass Guitar in Black.
