Steinberger Spirit XT25 Quilt Top Stand 5 String Bass Features

  • Steinberger is the Ultimate Travel Bass
  • 5-string Bass (Low-B) with Steinberger Humbucker Pickups
  • Patented DoubleBall Bass Bridge and Patented 40:1 Ratio Direct-Pull Tuning System
  • 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 Steinberger XT-25 "Quilt Top" Standard 5-string Bass 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.

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 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: As part of the Gibson Brands Family of Instruments, the Steinberger XT-25 Quilt Top Standard 5-string Bass comes with a Limited Lifetime Guarantee and 24/7/365 Gibson Customer Service.

Headless 5-string Bass
Product Rating

Product Review

If you are not sure you want to play the expensive Steinberger basses and don't want to invest that much until you do, this is the solution. It is a passive version of the expensive active model, but it will give the exact same sense, for way less. I swear by the headless system of guitars and basses, they have a 1 to 40 ratio of tuning verses the standard 1 to 16, the stay in Tune better and they adjust easier. Honestly I can't find a reason that all the guitars and basses aren't headless, except for the look of a head, which I could care less about and I own many basses. of which four are headless, and I prefer them to the rest.

Great value

Product Review

As a long time Steinberger player I wanted to get into a 5 string but wanted the short scale and ascetic I was used to. The width of the 5 string neck takes getting used to, but all in all it plays and sounds great. The fret edges were sharp or I would have given it 5 stars.

The best bass I’ve ever owned

Product Review

I got this bass and was very excited. But he warned it took some TLC to get it to be the best I have. The main complaint is how it sits naturally with a strap. But I had a modified strap hook 3D printed and once I installed that, it sat perfectly. The factory strings are ok but for some reason we’re filthy, so time was a little off. But once I did a string change to daddarios, who have double ball ends for this bass, tone improved greatly. Have it a complete set up, and a little bit of maintenance, and it is now my favorite bass. Super light, easy to carry around on my back, great passive punch phat tone, no real issues that arent normal day to day things. I oiled the tuners to give a little more flow but they still hold tuning amazingly well.
