Premier Guitar writer Steve Cook gave high marks to the NS CR5 RADIUS Bass Guitar in an online review this month. Marveling at the instrument’s sophistication and detail, Cook writes:
Steinberger has once again pushed the boundaries of interesting features while at the same time enhancing a bassist’s overall comfort and interaction with an instrument. The CR5 Radius bass is an engineering feat: It’s a blend of elegant form and practical purpose, with an array of dizzyingly meticulous details.
Cook writes glowingly both of the RADIUS’s aesthetics and its playability—particularly the high quality of the pickups. You can read his full review online at Premier Guitar, and listen to his sound samples below.
