FS: Steinberger Synapse 5-string fretless w/ gigbag CHEAP
Last year, my wife and I moved into a 1-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. I have way too much gear for such a small space and I'm trying to cut down to just 2 guitars, 1 fretless, and one fretted bass. So, I've got a few more basses and guitars to sell.
Here's a Steinberger Synapse XP-15 FPA fiver. It's an unlined fretless, but there are helpful dot markers along the edge of the fingerboard that keep you oriented. It's got a piezo element in the bridge and an active EMG in the sweet-spot, which you can blend. It's strung with LaBella Deep Talkin' Bass nylon tape-wounds for that thunky URB tone.
Controls are volume, piezo/EMG blend, treble boost/cut, and bass boost/cut:
Compared to the original Steinberger XL bass, this one has better ergonomics: it's lighter, has a belly cut, and an extended arm on which to hang the strap:
The hybrid wood/graphite neck allows neck relief adjustment, which is especially critical for a fretless bass:
The headpiece allows you to use either double-ball strings or conventional strings:
Piezo element in the bridge:
Comes with original gigbag and owner's manual:
More photos ... and LOW price!
Like the original XL bass, the Synapse has got a folding leg-rest:
Still has the plastic on the control cavity and battery covers. I love the rear jack and the fact that it has a little place to keep the Allen keys for the truss rod and bridge screws:
Fingerboard is in great shape:
The bass has 4 tiny finish imperfections...
I'm looking to get just $525 shipped in the continental USA.
forgot about me?
SOLD to a TB member.
Please close the thread. I read all the way through, thinking about what a cool little bass this is! Congrats on the sale and good luck downsizing for your new place!
