A simple question really. I have found I really prefer very narrow string spacing. I know of only a few stock basses that offer 5 or even 6 string basses with 16.5 or perhaps 17 mm spacing. What manufacturers might I be overlooking without going the fully custom route. Additionally, I currently adjust my basses to as narrow a string spacing as my basses adjustable bridges will allow and noticed that the strings fall very unevenly to one pole or the other between the pole pieces of those pick ups that are exposed. Do any players find that the tone is affected by narrow string spacing at the bridge with fixed standard spaced pick ups?
