The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~


Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, 1984 (REDUCED)

Here we have a Steinberger XL2 Headless Fretted Bass, dating to 1984 and built at the Steinberger shop in Newburgh, New York. It uses the unmistakable headless design based on the L2 and is made of graphite reinforced epoxy with some plastic components (the top). The pickups are by EMG. It is in overall very good, original condition though – as is common with these instruments – the plug-in leg rest is missing. Fret wear is minor and it’s very comfortable to play, with a tight focused tone even acoustically. 
Ned Steinberger came from a fine arts background, focusing on sculpture, to create highly influential instruments, particularly the headless guitar and bass.
