Designed by Ned Steinberger, the Synapse guitar is a HYBRID instrument combining the strength, rigidity and clarity of graphite with the warmth and beauty of wood. At the heart of every Synapse is the Cybrosonic neck featuring the patented graphite U-channel with adjustable truss rod uniquely crafted into a 3-piece, hard maple neck. The smooth and durable phenolic fingerboard and a neck-thru body design create an instrument with distinctive tonal clarity, sustain, "pop" and response as well as ultimate stability!
Add to that, a proprietary piezo-equipped bridge with 1-piece aluminum saddle combined with low-impedance EMG USA humbuckers and you've got an instrument with infinite tonal possibilities and increased frequency response. Isolate the piezo bridge to get simmering acoustic-like tones. Turn up the EMG's and youÕve got classic, high-output humbuckers Ð from clean to super crunchy. Combine the two pickup systems and let your imagination run wild.
Other features include a gorgeous flame maple top, a zero-fret for improved intonation, the Steinberger Combo headpiece to allow for the use of DoubleBall and single ball strings and the patented Direct-Drive double-ball bridge with 40:1 tuners for tuning ease, accuracy and stability that only a Steinberger can provide. With Steinberger, you can change strings in seconds, tune up once and not have to tune again until you change strings again.
Provided with a premium, padded gigbag, the Synapse also makes a great travel instrument measuring only 35" in length and capable of fitting into the tightest of places including overhead airplane bins. The result is a guitar of unequalled performance, comfort and flexibility. Steinberger - State of the Instrument.
