Meticulously crafted in the Czech Republic, the CR5 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. The fingerboard is phenolic, with a 35" scale and familiar 15" radius. Heavy conventional tuning machines are replaced by an aluminum headplate with ball-end string mounting slots, custom produced for NS Design by Hipshot. (The tuning system is integrated into the body.)

The instrument as a whole is perfectly balanced, no downward dip of the neck, giving the left hand unprecedented freedom. Combined, the shape, balance and light weight of the RADIUS, just 8.3 lbs, make this instrument exceptionally comfortable to play.

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.

This fast, simple system accepts any standard single-ball end, full-scale bass guitar string. No tools are needed: simply rotate the knurled knob to change a string or tune the instrument.NS/EMG Integral Pickup System: NS Design and EMG have collaborated to create this integrated piezo and magnetic pickup system. It features an 18V onboard preamp, which provides extraordinary dynamic headroom. The active electronics are combined with the NS bridge-mountedPolar™ pickup system, the marriage of which puts an exceptionally broad, musically rich spectrum of tone at the player's fingertips.Controls: The controls on the RADIUS bass give the player full ability to shape and mix the magnetic and piezo output: Master Volume, active Treble cut/boost, active Bass cut/boost, rotary magnetic/piezo pickup blend, 3-position magnetic pickup selector switch, and 3-position piezo EQ switch.

Bridge & Saddle: Custom crafted for NS Design by Hipshot, 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.
