Featuring a unique headless, bolt on maple neck with 24 frets, the NXTa comes in both four and five string variants, with a familar 15″ fretboard radius for enhanced comfort up the neck. The NS NXTa also utilises a self-clamping tuning system to maintain stability and pitch, eschewing issues commonly found in headless instruments to provide players with an instrument they can always depend on. There’s also no need to purchase different strings to be used with the bass, which is always a massive plus.
Loaded with custom NS/EMG pickups and a battery free Dual Mode Output made for NS by Mi-Si, the NXTa Radius allows users to switch between active and passive modes via a push-pull tone knob. Interestingly enough, the Active mode of the NXTa is powered via a 60 second charge from an AC adaptor, which gives 16 hours of active output from time of charge. Listen to how it sounds below.
Created in the Czech Republic and available in Satin Black and Sunburst finishes, as well as fretted and fretless variants, the NS Designs NXTa Radius is now available for order in Australia.
