I just bought a 2012 Fender American Standard p 5 string and decided to put some Chromes flats long scale strings on it. The low B was fortunately long enough to go through the body without the silk getting into the nut otherwise had I had to top load it the windings would have been on the saddle. The bridge seems to be set a bit too forward. I can work around it as I can just order strings long enough to go through body but this seems like a pretty common problem with most of the 5 string basses I've owned and not just Fender. I have usually had problems with the B string where in setting the intonation I seem to run out of real estate and have either trimmed or removed springs or come close to or had the winding touching or riding on the bridge saddle. It seems to me like a lot of manufactuers set the bridges for 4 string instruments and forget that the B string saddle sits back farther than the rest. Is this just me and I'm doing something wrong with my setups or has anybody else noticed this?
