    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.
     
  3. Only bass' that i know of are the Warwick Streamer Stage I but there in the multi 1000 dollar marks as you put it, sorry i'm not of much help.

    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.
