Steinberger Spirit XT25 Quilt 5-String

Steinberger presents the new Steinberger Spirit XT-25 "Quilt Top" Standard 5-string Outfit the Ultimate Travel Bass featuring the revolutionary Steinberger body design, Low B (5th string), patented DoubleBall Bass Bridge, patented 40:1 Ratio Direct-Pull Tuning System, powerful Steinberger HB pickups, plus a deluxe gigbag. The Steinberger XT-25 "Quilt Top" Standard 5-string Bass Outfit is part of the new Steinberger Spirit Series and is available in Trans Black, Trans Blue, or Wine Red finish.

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 Steinberger XT-25 "Quilt Top" Standard 5-string Bass Outfit features the revolutionary Steinberger Bass design with a 5th string tuned to Low B, a Poplar body, and a 3-piece Hard Maple neck that together resonate as a single piece of wood. For traveling musicians, the XT-25 is the Ultimate Travel Bass. At 38.5” long and only 8.2lbs, 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-25 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 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 "Quilt Top" feels more balanced than a typical electric bass even with a 5th string. Fine tuning adjustments are made at the bridge and string changes can be made fast! The Steinberger XT-25 is set up at the factory with Steinberger DoubleBall (45-65-85-105-128) strings. Plus, with the Single Ball String Adopter, you can set also set up the XT-25 with any bass string of your choice.

Superb Steinberger Pickups:

The Steinberger XT-25 Standard "Quilt Top" 5-string Bass Outfit 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.

"Worth the long wait"
Overall: Ordered the quilt top XT-25 wine red back in March. The delivery date kept getting pushed back. No fault of zZounds, but I was getting pretty frustrated. Then suddenly I received the notification that it had shipped. 5 days later I had it. I had read the limited reviews, some good, some not. Some saying there were blemishes in the finish and other problems. So I unpacked it carefully and looked it over literally with a magnifying glass. Don't know about others, but mine is FLAWLESS ! and BEAUTIFUL ! Pictures do not do it justice. Frets and intonation are great. The wood used on the fretboard is very hard and very pretty as well. Light and compact, when I whipped it out to show my bandmates their jaws literally dropped ! It was funny to see. My only critique, the tuners were/are stiff and hard to turn. I put a few drops of liquid wrench on them and worked them in/out a few times. Better. But still hard to tune exactly. It will take me some time to adjust the tone to what I want. Trial and error. I have a 4 string Spirit and a hard case for same. The XT-25 does not fit into this case. Too wide. The gig bag it comes with is adequate. I'm not a gig bag guy. Will have to get a hard case (when they're available). Bottom line, I love this bass ! for under $500 you are getting a unique instrument. I'm sure the standard model at $50 less is just as good. BUY IT !
