    Not sure if I want to do this yet but I have an R bass Jazz modern in excellent condition. It's a killer jazz, one of which Ray considers one of his best. Best part of this jazz bass that puts it apart from the rest is that not a SINGLE note is thin sounding. This bass is beefy on every string. something that bothers me was drastic differences in timbre and volume between strings, but not this bass! I've had 35" scale basses but this bass has the best B string by far. Very low action makes it a pleasure to play. It does the Marcus vibe so well even he'd give his signature bass second thoughts. This bass is absolutely beautiful, plays extremely well, and sounds both musical and thunderous - it's the complete package!

    Measure from the center of the B to the center of the G, right in front of the bridge saddles. If it's 19mm (3/4") it should land right on 3".

    To figure out the string-to-string spacing, take that measure and divide by 4 (not 5; 5 strings = 4 spaces).
