Distinctive, award-winning body-shape bolstered with amazing features.

The Spirit XT-25 is a 5-string bass guitar featuring the same distinctive body-shape as the award-winning Steinberger XL Series and the trademark headless neck with the patented Double-Ball tuning system. Other features include the patented double-ball Steinberger bass bridge with direct-pull, 40:1 ratio machine heads, 2 (HB - HB) Steinberger bass pickups and folding leg rest for playing comfort while sitting. And the XT-2 is perhaps the world's most travel-friendly and convenient bass ever made. Being only 38.5" in length, the Steinberger Spirit XT-25 can fit in places where other basses can't. It also features a 3-piece hard maple neck and thru-neck solid wood construction. Also comes with a deluxe gig bag.

While this bass comes set up for a low B string, there is a Steinberger string set available to make it a high C instrument instead (see our SKU #100929).

Comments about Steinberger Spirit XT-25 5-String Standard Bass:

Sounds great & feels great for purpose I bought it (travel/practice) but I'd also be confident performing with it. ***Warning: when standing and playing with a strap, the bass hangs in a very unusual position (way to the left) making the reach to the 1st fret VERY far. Options are to either get used to the strange positioning or plan to add a strap hook type thing like the synapse has.

Very different, I'm hooked!


from Lake Tahoe, NV

Comments about Steinberger Spirit XT-25 5-String Standard Bass:

I thought it might be a cool bass to have for a few different reasons. It is very comfortable to play in terms of weight. I added a steinberger synapse extension hook to my bass to get a better feel to it's balance. It worked really well. I'm surprised they don't come standard. It Was easy to install though. Also, I wish the side marker dots were larger and easier to see. I love the leg extension; It's very comfortable to sit and play. For portability and ease of transport you can't beat this bass. It's a full scale (34") 24 fret,5 string bass, but is only slightly bigger than say one of those Ashbury basses with the rubber strings. The XT-25 sounds really great! You can get some tones ranging from modern to vintage. It stays in tune really well. Fit and finish is superb as is the craftsmanship. Fret work is usually the downfall to the foreign made basses, but not this one- perfect! I did adjust the trussrod to my liking. Finish is beautiful black, like a grand piano. Very glossy, seems to be very durable. I have several other basses for gigs of various kinds. I use the XT-25 sometimes for rehearsals, or for an easy shlep when I want to jam with my friends playing around town. This bass always gets noticed, and sounds amazing for the money. It's easy and fun to play; a liittle narrow in the spacing for slap. I'm very glad to own mine for about a year now. I highly recommend it.

from Kingston Jamaica

Comments about Steinberger Spirit XT-25 5-String Standard Bass:

This is your all round bass guuitar. It's so light, comfortable and uniquely designed. (Both neckthru and headless) It provides a nice tone for different musical experience. Most of all it's ideal for travelling to different gigs. For those bassist who like to sit and play, your guitar strap is very important as base on its sleek defined shape it is more comfortable to play elevated from your leg. I had the oppurtunity of playing one for a week while visiting Mississippi and Memphis from Jamaica and I fell in love with this bass. Presently I don't own a bass but it's my hearts desire to own a steinberger spirit XT-25 5string black bass before the summer of this year. Love it man. Awesome.
