“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.
