    I stumbled on to a deal this past weekend and am now the owner of a "Spirit, by Steinberger" XT-2.

    First "headless" bass I've owned after playing for decades" and owning "several" basses. The weight and playability is fantastic, especially since I added a strap extension to "center" the bass on me while wearing the bass on a strap. The strap extension will be flat black to match the rest of the hardware, I just put it on the bass for testing and pictures. So comfortable to wear on a strap, I think I could go bowling with this bass strapped on.

    Full review; Spirit by Steinberger XT-2

    I hate those basses but have to admit that that one looks kinda cool :). Congrats!
  3. I had a black Spirit XT-2 and now I want a XT-25 to tag team with my XZ-25. Nice bass.

    They aren't for everyone obviously haha. But they sit and play so nicely.

    I think I'm with you; after playing this one a while, I think I'd like to try a five string version. So comfortable on the strap & so easy to play, I'm a one week addict.

    For those looking for the full review, I had trouble with the link (it somehow redirected to an effects pedal)

    This will take you to the review in question

    I think Steinberger basses are cool. They are so 80's Pop that I feel it's mandatory to wear a brightly colored jumpsuit and have appropriate hair while playing...
