Ned Steinberger has been designing amazing instruments that address ergonomics like nobody else for the past 40 years. Ever since he started working with Stuart Design in New York back in the 70's and now with his own NS Design brand, each of the instruments that have come out of his mind and design board have perfect ergonomics.
This is the CR5 model and it is a great electric bass that shares some of the specs from the NS Electric Upright basses. The headsless design means you can play it on your lap without a strap (must be one of the few 5 string basses that doesn't dive in). With a strap it balances beautifully. The radiused body is particularly comfortable.
It features two custom made active EMG pickups with arched top following the radius of the body and the fingerboard. There's a piezo system in the bridge and a top quality preamp to mix the signals from the magnetics and the piezo beautifully.
Lots of great sounds here in a really comfortable 5 string bass.
