Features: What it does for you:

Direct-Drive double-ball bridge Stable tuning, easy changing; less string drag

Product Description

Play it open and it's a baritone, roll the built-in capo up a couple of frets and it's a normal 25-1/2" guitar. Continue rolling the capo up the neck and... well... it's just about anything! Designed by Ned Steinberger, the Synapse guitar is a HYBRID instrument combining the strength, rigidity and clarity of graphite with the warmth and beauty of wood. At the heart of every Synapse is our Cybrosonic(TM) neck featuring our patented graphite U-channel with adjustable truss rod uniquely crafted into a 3-piece, hard maple neck. We then add a smooth and durable phenolic fingerboard and a neck-thru body design to create an instrument with distinctive tonal clarity, sustain, "pop" and response as well as ultimate stability!

Add to that, a proprietary piezo-equipped bridge with 1-piece aluminum saddle combined with low-impedance EMG USA humbuckers and you've got an instrument with infinite tonal possibilities and increased frequency response. Isolate the piezo bridge to get simmering acoustic-like tones. Turn up the EMG's and you've got classic, high-output humbuckers - from clean to super crunchy. Combine the two pickup systems and let your imagination run wild.

Other features include a gorgeous flame maple top, zero-fret for improved intonation, the new Steinberger Combo headpiece to allow for the use of DoubleBall(TM) and single ball strings and our patented Direct-Drive double-ball bridge with 40:1 tuners for tuning ease, accuracy and stability that only a Steinberger can provide. With Steinberger, you can change strings in seconds, tune up once and not have to tune again until you change strings again.

Provided with a premium, padded gigbag, the Synapse also makes a great travel instrument measuring only 35" in length and capable of fitting into the tightest of places including overhead airplane bins. The result is a guitar of unequalled performance, comfort and flexibility. Steinberger - State of the Instrument.

5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Steinberger Synapse Transcale SS2F"
Overall: I am more than pleased with everything that went with purchasing the guitar as well as the guitar itself. It was delivered very very quickly and in fine order. I had a Hohner replica many years ago and now wanted to replace it with the real thing. I could not be more pleased--thanks a million!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
