    I have been playing a schecter stiletto for a long time. The bass is super comfortable. I bought a MTD KZ bass and thought I would get used to the wide spacing. After nearly a year I can not get used to spacing and I cant really resell it because I am a lefty.

    How can I change the spacing?

    Why can't you resell it because you are a lefty? I buy and sell all the time as a lefty. Hell, we even have our own bass forums with a reasonably about of users who buy and sell.

    maybe I am using the fact that I am a lefty to mask my attachment to an inanimate object

    I'm guessing this is a 5er? If u wanna sell it, go to either of the dedicated lefty bass sites/forums n it'll sell. Trust me, I'm a lefty!

    Is it the nut width or the neck width?

    You can change the nut.

    Thanks for the advice. Both basses are actually four string models. Looking at the hipshot bridges. They look pretty good. I also found some vintage style saddles that I am considering trying. They have multiple grooves for the strings.

    FYI my major issue is not near the nut, the MTD spacing gets much wider by the bridge

    ChuckO,

    I'm not sure where I got the idea your bass was a 6-string. Apologies.

    However, the fact it's a 4, makes it easier to get a replacement.

    Hipshot and other vendors, have lots of 4-string option.

    Bob
