The Steinberger Bass has a radically different design front that of any other guitar. Its body is made of a strong, dense plastic, rather than wood like a typical bass. This gives the guitar clear, hard-edged tones. The small, hollow body contains "active electronics" that both amplify the pickups and allow you to produce a wide variety of different sounds.

Pitch range
About three octaves.
Molded epoxy resin reinforced with carbon and glass fibers - a type of graphite.
38 in (97 cm) long.
Utilizing the latest materials, an American, Ned Steinberger, made this bass guitar in the early 1980s.
Chordophone: an instrument that produces its sound by the vibration of strings.
And also...
Graphite - the substance out of which the Steinberger bass is made - is twice as dense and ten times more stiff than wood, yet stronger and lighter than steel.
