    I have done some research here and online and can't really find a for sure definite answer, so I hope someone here can help me. What is the string spacing on the Surveyor 5? Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply Bob. I sent them an inquiry, though I'm not entirely sure the message was sent as it didn't say anything afterwards.

    I researched these a few years ago when looking for a normal spaced 5 string...the ESP's are 17mm so they are very narrow.

    Well, current Fenders are 18mm and that is .669 vs .708 (or .039 difference) and SR5s are 17.5mm or .688 (.019 difference).

    To me, 15.5mm or less spacing is noticably narrow.

    I instantly fell head over heels in love with my ESP/LTD Surveyor 4 that I just got last week. GAS hit me pretty badly to the point that I was loosing sleep so I just bought the Surveyor 415 in the quilted maple sunburst finish with a maple board. My Warwick had pretty narrow spacing and I was able to adapt to it so I don't foresee any problems here. Thanks for the help guys!
