    This is one of the less common Steinberger Spirit XP-25 mini-V basses. You see a lot of XT-25s, but I searched years for an XP-25. And it's in a less common color - bright red, red as a baboon's butt. Now that I have it, I've found that just don't need it!

    Condition is great - a few swirlies that look like they would easily buff out by hand, and fretwear is minimal. There's even still fragments of the protective pickguard plastic under some of the screws. It includes the original gigbag.

    Price drop to $475 $500 plus shipping at cost. No trades, please. More pics on request. I'd really like to keep this a US only sale because international shipping has gotten out of control, but I'm willing to talk about it.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! One interesting thing about the XPs compared to the XTs is the weight and balance differences - I've found the XP like mine to be lighter than my old XTs with a different, less neck heavy balance.
