Ned Steinberger and NS Design unveiled the latest in their Radius bass guitar series with the NXTa Radius. The headless bass carries many of the same features of the lineup while adding their NXTa battery-free active electronics.
“The new NXTa brings together the brilliant ergonomics of the headless neck and body configuration, the NS self-clamping tuning system, custom NS/EMG™ pickups, volume-volume-tone controls, and the battery-free Dual Mode Output electronics made for NS by Mi-Si™,” the company states.
It comes in four or five-string versions, each of which can be ordered fretted or fretless. The NXTa Radius bass is crafted in the Czech Republic from maple with a flamed maple top.
