Six String guitar with wide string spacing
What would be a good 6 string electric guitar with a wide string spacing that is easy for a bass player to adjust to??

I googled it cuz I was curious.
Not much info out there regarding this. Someone else asked the question here also, and got little to no response. This was what I found on a guitar forum http://www.playjazzguitar.com/forum/...ic.php?p=42373
I'd suggest gooling it youself using "string spacing" "wide neck" "wide nut" etc. in your search. Doubt you'll get a whole lot of response here.

The various copies of Brian May's 'Red Special' tend towards a wide nut width (around 45 mm) but I honestly wouldn't worry about it too much.
It can vary a bit, my dad had an old vox teardrop with a very tight string spacing, but both Fender and Gibson (and their derivatives) have a reasonable string spacing that you'll soon get the hang of.

Just a random thought... You may already be aware that Warwick bridges are adjustable 3 ways: Forward/back for intonation, up/down for action, and left/right for string spacing.
Your question makes me wonder if the Framus bridges are similar. That way you could set whichever string spacing you want. It might be a topic worth posting in the Warwick forum.

When I first started playing (guitar, then I crossed over to the dark side :bassist: ) a friend had an old Kramer that had a really wide neck, that helped out a lot. It was an electric, not sure what model.

Classical guitars. I rented a Gibson SG once for recording and I found it had a pretty wide spacing. I do not know if it was normal or not, i am not a guitar player so I only played that one.
