    Does anyone (without going for a multi-1000 dollar custom) make a 6 string bass with spacing close to this?

    You can find a used Yamaha TRB6 for around $1000. They have 19mm spacing. The closest for a new bass under $1000 is the Ibanez BTB406. I think it is 17.5mm.

    Second the vote for the Yam TRBs. Used, you can find them at or under $1000, and they're the only ones I know *for sure* have the 19 mm spacing.

    BTB's and TRB's have both 19 mm stringspacing.
