Carbon/maple hybrid delivers the warmth of wood and clarity of graphite.
Designed by Ned Steinberger himself, the Steinberger Synapse XS-15FPA 5-String Bass Guitar features the unique U-channel graphite core in a rock maple neck and maple body. Combo head accommodates double-ball and single-ball strings while the unique direct-drive double ball bridge adds super-fast string changes and tune-it-once tuning stability.
While other guitar manufacturers have been resting on their laurels, Steinberger's been thinking. Witness the strap hook, recessed tool holder and output jack, fold-down leg rest, and phenolic fingerboard that's slick as butter and fast as lightning.
Low-impedance EMG USA bass pickup with internal low-impedance preamp and piezo bridge extends the range on both ends for earth-moving lows and phenomenal transients from slap-style playing.
Includes gig bag.

Comments about Steinberger Synapse XS-15FPA 5-String Bass Guitar:
This was one of the most impressive bass guitars I have ever played. The performance was superb and the neck action was perfect. Love the tone variation and capabilities To be fair it also was one of the bulkyest guitars I've ever handled (and one does not expect that with a Steinberger). A+++
