Steinberger, part of the Gibson family of brands, has announced three exclusive collections of new Steinberger Synapse Models. The complete product line incorporates more than a dozen new innovations from legendary guitar and bass designer Ned Steinberger.
The Synapses are offered in three model families. The Synapse Collection features 2 EMG humbuckers and a 25.5" scale length. The Synapse TransScale Collection features a 27.85" scale length with integrated rolling capo, along with 2 EMG humbucking pickups, piezo bridge pickup and active EQ. The Synapse Bass Collection features active EQ, a proprietary piezo bridge pickup system and is currently available in a 5 string with 4 and 6 string models to follow.
Ned Steinberger earned his place among the all-time great musical instrument designers with his headless bass design, featuring carbon-graphite materials, introduced in 1979. In 1987 Steinberger Sound joined the Gibson family. Gibson and Epiphone continued to offer Steinberger basses and guitars, although Ned was not affiliated with the company through the 1990s. In 2003, Ned reunited with Steinberger, bringing with him a decade's worth of innovative ideas for guitars and basses. Those ideas are embodied in the new Synapse line.
In addition to the product launch, Steinberger has created a new website exclusively for the Synapse line as well as the revived Steinberger USA and Spirit lines. This marks the first time the guitar maker has a dedicated Steinberger website in over 5 years.
Plans for distribution of the product in the USA include an exclusive arrangement in the USA with Musician's Friend. Distribution outside the USA will follow.
Synapse features include:
And because of the headless design, the Synapse is only 30" long making it a full-size travel guitar. All Synapse instruments carry a Limited Lifetime warranty.
