[NOW SOLD] this awesome Steinberger XQ-5, made in USA. Ash body, famous Graphite composite neck.
The serial is TN-16069, model XQSTD5CB, cherry burst, dated June 2, 1996, before of Steinberger by "Music Yo" with Moses neck.
Completely original except for the preamp which is a Sadowsky equivalent with the possibility of Active/Passive mode, purchased separately, and a screw at the top of the bolt-on which has been replaced and has a double battery compartment.
This model with the Bartolini has a really good attack but a more balanced and softer sound than the brothers with Duncan or EMG.
Perfectly working. Original soft case included.
Built in the famous Tennessee plant, under the supervision of Gibson who had taken over the company and who continued to use the components of the previous Q5 models. Definitely more aesthetically pleasing (for this reason in fact Gibson had imposed a change of products line), and lighter as it has an ash body, with a very firm and balanced sound, with woods supplied directly by Gibson stocks, they are in fact even better balanced compared to the previous Q models that instead have a maple body.

Would consider a trade for the early 80s Precision special. The active one with matching headstock. Prefer Lake placis blue with maple board or candy apple red
I have decided to put my Steinberger back up for sale. I tried a while back but was tired of the lowball offers, so I removed it from sale.
It's in really amazing condition, it's not mint but it is very good. It has 2 extra strap buttons on its base, which prevents damage if you lean it against something.
It has its original gig bag.
I'm not in any hurry as I don't need to sell it, it's just time someone started using it. I've only used it in my Police tribute band.
I can courier in the UK but I would rather meet up, I'm prepared to meet part way if that helps
More photos if required, just PM me
For sale is a Steinberger Spirit XT-25 fretless. I bought this on eBay a while ago, a bit of a spur-of-the-moment purchase. It's actually a really playable bass with a great range of tones, but I slightly overestimated my abilities on fretless, so it hasn't had a great deal of use! I know they say you should persevere with these things, but I'm getting old and cantankerous, and I'm looking for the path of least resistance these days...
I can't seem to find a new fretless version of this bass online, and it's not listed on Steinberger's website as a option, so the fretless fingerboard must have been added later. If so, whoever did the work made a very nice job of it. The neck-edge dots are on the fret positions.
It's in good used condition (see photos) with a lovely rosewood fingerboard, and everything works. It plays beautifully, and sounds great. Comes complete with its gig bag.
contains all original ,and slightly tatty paraphernalia & original gig bag, will give extra gig bag bought back from the amazon .
This vintage bass is a great bass for fast picking style ..and metal😼
There is a slight wiring issue which may be from the replacement jack at the time . This causes the bass to eat batteries very quickly .Easy fix for someone technically minded.NOW FIXED by Absolute Music in Poole at cost .
The stickers on the battery cover will be removed if required .
I have too many bases and only 2 hands , so something has to go.
Based in Poole Dorset . UK only preferred . Prefer collection in person . If you want it posted please arrange your own courier .
