Meticulously crafted in the Czech Republic, the RADIUS Bass Guitar embodies a breadth of experience, insight, and design brilliance which only Ned Steinberger can bring to the creation of a new classic. His approach to the RADIUS, as with every new instrument, was to re-explore each facet of a bass guitar, leading to innovations such as the Fusion neck, the Diradial body design, the NS tuning system, and the NS/EMG pickup system. However, what makes this instrument most remarkable is its seamless integration of feature, form and function. The sensuous lines of the RADIUS are balanced and refreshing, which is exactly how it feels to hold and to play it. Most of all, the RADIUS is, by design, the most sonically dynamic, versatile and exciting bass available today.
NS Fusion Neck: The RADIUS features a bolt-on one-piece maple neck with an embedded continuous carbon fiber core and adjustable truss rod. This combination has the natural feel of wood, but the core provides enhanced sustain and definition to each note.
NS Diradial™ Body: NS Diradial Body The RADIUS's maple body, with flamed maple top, has a concave back radius, which provides enhanced contact and stability against the torso.
NS Patented Tuning System (US Patent 6,528,710): Based on a design originally created for the NS violin, the RADIUS has a self-clamping, precision tuning machine, built into the body.
Bridge & Saddle: The aluminum one-piece bridge and saddle assembly provide full height and angle adjustment, allowing the player to precisely tailor the action and tweak the intonation with the adjustment of hex head set screws (hex key included).
