I'm 5'6" and like playing 5 strings better than 4. However, a lot of 5 string basses have string spacing that look like they were made for people with bigger hands. I don't have a problem with long scale as my arms are long (considering my size) but my hands are more in proportion with the rest of my body. I currentl play a Yamaha BB405 and find that I like the neck and the spacing there but the spacing closer to the bridge limits my playing. I don't slap that much so I don't need a lot of space there. I'm thinking of getting a second bass, and I'm looking for you experienced guys who have tried a lot basses to suggest a 5 stringer that could fit me. Thanks for the help!
