    hi there i ws considering getting a bass tremolo on an ibanez SR905 (which has a string spacing of 16.5mm) , and i spoke to the guys at Hipshot and they said the smallest string spacing they did was 17mm.
    would it matter if i got it put on anyway, i mean its only half a millimetre, or would this lead to problems.
    thanks alot
  2. I'm thinking it's .5mm PER STRING x 4 spaces between strings= 2mm- still not much, but if it's enough to put the top & bottom strings uncomfortably close to the fretboard edge then you probably wouldn't be happy w/the results. I'm a pretty sloppy player & often accidently pull the G string off the bottom edge- sounds awful. I had my custom 6 made quite a bit wider than I imagined I would ever need, then adjusted the spacing in slightly.
