    Does anyone make a 4 string bass w/17.5 mm spacing? All the four string basses I see have 19mm (3/4) spacing. Ibanez is tighter than 17.5mm so they're out of the question.

    A lot of short scale basses are less than 19mm. A Squier Bronco for example, is 17mm.

    You can find some aftermarket bridges. For example, this is an 18mm bridge by Song-Il http://www.sung-il.com/bbs/board.php?bo_table=b071_29

    I'm sure there are others as well.

    Best of luck with the hunt!

    I have a vintage Hagstrom with that string spacing. Actually it's closer to 18-18-16.5mm.
    Probably not what your looking for tho.

    I had an old Aria Pro II CSB-450 that seemed to have spacing around 17.5-18 mm. Fantastic bass also.

    My fano px4 is a 4 stringer and it has 17.75 mm spacing. 32" scale.

    I may be wrong, but the only four string standard scale I can think of in that spacing would be the MusicMan Sterling.
