Steinberger instruments are known for their eye-catching compact headless designs. The Spirit XT-2 Standard sets the bar for their bass offerings, combining retrofuturistic design with their patented DoubleBall bridge and versatile humbucking pickups.
Revolutionary versatile design
The Steinberger is widely perceived as one of best travel guitar solutions on the market. Don’t be deceived by its sci-fi looks; this bass is designed to provide a crystal-clear sound that’s versatile enough for any application. A Basswood body and Maple neck provides a light playability and balanced, neutral tone.
The tonewood combo is the perfect platform for the XT-2’s humbuckers. The HB-1 bridge pickup gives you clarity and bite, while the HB-2 neck pickup adds warmth and weight in equal measure.
