UTILIZATION

The XZ-25 is very easy to play. The high frets are easily accessed, and the action can be set very low. The neck carve and fretboard radius make for an incredibly comfortable playability factor, and the lack of a headstock provides for great balance. The tuning machines are very stable, and the bridge hardware has been expertly machined. It's a touch on the heavy side, but no more so than an old P-bass.

SOUNDS

The pickups are surprisingly good. I was expecting to need to change them out upon purchase, but they actually put out a good variety of tones for fingerstyle, slap and pop, tapping, and pick-style. The electronics are a touch weird, in my opinion - two volumes and a tone? I'd rather have a volume, blend, and tone - the resultant sound would be nearly identical, but upon turning down (for song endings, etc), there would only by one volume knob needed to use.

OVERALL OPINION

For the price, this bass is way better than anything else out there. The low B has no flab, the string spacing is wide enough to slap yet tight enough to play fingerstyle comfortably, and the pickups are nice. The neck is the real jem on this, but then again, that tuning system is fantastic... I have a lot of positive things to say about the Steinberger XZ-25 Spirit series bass, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone.
