The Steinberger XT-25 "Quilt Top" Standard 5 string bass features the revolutionary Steinberger Bass design with a 5th string tuned to Low B, a Basswood body, a quilt Maple top in Wine Red finish, and a 3 piece Hard Maple neck that resonate as a single piece of wood.
Thanks to its headless construction and 3 piece Hard Maple neck, the XT-25 isn’t 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.
Steinberger basses are renowned for their exceptional tone and intonation at all positions. With no headstock, the XT-25 Quilt Top 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 Standard 5 string Bass is powered by Steinberger full tone HB-1 (bridge) and HB-2 (neck) humbucker pickups. Controls feature black Steinberger style knobs for Neck Pickup Volume, Bridge Pickup Volume, and Master Tone.
Bonus! Keep this bass safe, no matter where the road leads you with the included padded gig bag - plus its ergonomic design makes it easy to take anywhere, including overhead airline compartments.
