Revolutionary Steinberger Bass Design:
There was nothing like Ned Steinberger's 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 XT-2 Standard Electric Bass Outfit features the revolutionary Steinberger Bass design with a Poplar body and 3-piece Hard Maple neck that together resonate as a single piece of wood. For traveling musicians, the XT-2 is the Ultimate Travel BassTM. At 38.5" long and only 7.5lbs, 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-2 isn't as sensitive to temperature changes, which makes it virtually indestructible! The neck has a comfortable 1960's style SlimTaper-D profile with a basswood composite fingerboard, 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.
Patented DoubleBall Bass Bridge:
Steinberger basses like Steinberger guitars are renowned for their exceptional tone and intonation at all positions. With no headstock, the XT-2 has a Zero Nut Fret with a width of 1.50" that moves up to 2.156" at the 12th fret as the neck subtly widens to 0.70" 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 headstock, the weight of the XT-2 feels more balanced than a typical electric bass. Fine tuning adjustments are made at the bridge and string changes can be made fast! The Steinberger XT-2 is set up at the factory with Steinberger DoubleBall (45,65,85,105) strings. Plus, with the Single Ball String Adopter, you can set also set up the XT-2 with any bass string of your choice.

At Easy Music Center, we care for our instruments from the moment they arrive to when they ship to your door. All instruments are stored in a climate controlled environment and put through a 12-point inspection checklist before being shipped.
First, we check the finish of the instrument, carefully inspecting any blemishes on the surface. Next, we check the playability and setup by inspecting and adjusting the truss rod (if available), bridge, nut, and frets to manufacturer factory specifications. Any request made outside of manufacturer factory specifications can incur additional charges for parts and labor. If the instrument has electronics, we test all of the electronic components to make sure they are functioning properly.
After a thorough inspection, we then move on to maintenance. We start by lubricating any moving parts on the instrument, such as tuning machines. We then move on to cleaning and oiling the fretboard along with the frets.
Once maintenance is done, we stretch and tune the strings and play test the instrument. After this, we do a final inspection and clean/detail the instrument before packing it up for shipment.
We’re excited to be a part of your instrument buying experience.
