    I am interested in finding a 5 string jazz bass with fairly wide string spacing (similar to a 4). I have a 5 string now (Tribute L-2500) and the strings are very close together. I was wondering if there were any 5 strings with wider spacing and am particularly interested in jazz basses (Fender, Sadowsky, Lull, etc). Thanks for your help.

    My new KSD Proto V70J5 has 19mm spacing at the bridge. The neck is a little chunky, but I got used to it rather quickly. Check it out if you can find one!

    Thsi has been done before a fair bit but for what it's worth my Fender J5 has standard 4 string J spacing and is very comfortable.
