NS-1 Mock-up

 Made of defective SB neck in
March of '77. Ned Steinberger
took his idea of a curved body
to a 3-D structure. The body
is made from smaller pieces
of wood, much like a butchers
block. This was built to see if
the idea would actually work!

NS-1 Prototype
This is the bass that started it all.
Original Ned Steinberger design.
Walnut body walnut.
