Steinberger Bass Guitars - Headless and Wonderfully Compact!

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.

DB-Drop Tuner

The headline feature of the XT-2DB is, as the name suggests, the DB-drop tuning system. This revolutionary design allows you to instantly tune the lower string from E to D, so you're in drop-D. This tuning is popular for everything from folk to thrash metal, so being able to change from that to standard and back again is immensely handy.  

Here’s what Steinberger say:

Steinberger presents the XT-2DB Standard 4-string Electric Bass Outfit, the Ultimate Travel Bass featuring the revolutionary Steinberger body design, the DB-Tuner system for instant drop tuning (low E-string to D), 40:1 Direct Pull tuners, patented DoubleBall Bass Bridge, powerful Steinberger HB pickups, plus a deluxe gigbag. The XT-2DB Standard 4-string Bass Outfit is part of Steinberger’s new Spirit Collection and is available in a Black Gloss Finish.
