  • Steinberger HB pickups
  • Deluxe Gigbag
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 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 Bass. At 38.5 inch 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 Granadilla fingerboard, 24 medium jumbo frets, a 34 inch scale length, and a 14 inch 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 inch that moves up to 2.156 inch at the 12th fret as the neck subtly widens to 0.70 inch 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.

Superb Steinberger Pickups
The Steinberger XT-2 Standard 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.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Great for travel!
Product Rating

Product Review

Bass was received in excellent condition and very quickly. I bought this bass mainly for travel purposes and couldn’t be happier. Easily fit in the overhead compartment on my flight. Action was pretty good right out of the box and ready to play. My only complaint would be that the bass tends to hang off the strap in a slightly odd position. Took me some time to get used to, but not a deal breaker. Thank you American Musical Supply for excellent customer service at a fair price.

Developing arthritis in my shoulders at 67 and have been watching this item since it was offered. What is really nice is that you can carry it on a plane. After 50 some years in the bars, life has to become easier.

Well built bass

Product Review

In my opinion this bass is built and sounds like a bass that would cost at least twice as much. That being said, I had a problem with the D string tuner. I could only get a C# with it turned in all the way. I called AMS and the rep I spoke with emailed me a shipping label and sent me a new one with no issues. I honestly love this thing. Would recommend it to anyone. I should also mention that some people say it is uncomfortable to play. I found it the exact opposite. The fold out leg rest makes it very comfortable while sitting and is very sturdy within reason. THANK YOU...GOOD NIGHT.

It is an easy Bass to pick up and play not at all bulky. It’s a fun instrumental play and I love the color (Hot Rod yellow).

Great Bass!!

Product Review

Very solid construction. Needed a little setting up but that’s normal. Sounds decent through my Eleven Rack right out of the box. This will be a project bass as I will be upgrading the pickups and adding an active EQ. A very well made solid foundation for upgrades but can certainly hold its ground for a sub $500 instrument. Highly recommended!
