As it turns out, the Peavey Grind 6 String I ordered back in July won't be ready until "probably" the end of December when originally they said it was going to be "sometime in September". To me this is a real pisser, so I went snooping around on the internet and I compiled a short list of practical basses in my price range: under a grand. But I do have some questions about some models if anyone's familiar. I like to slap, pop and tap the bass so I'm into wider string spacings. So does anyone know how the spacing on a Schecter Stiletto Studio or Custom feels? Likewise for an ESP LTD B-206SM? Or can anyone compare the spacing to another bass? And now here's a question I think I know the reaction will be. Looking around Kijiji I noticed three Yamaha RBXJM2 basses were for sale. I've read threads about them before so you don't have to go on about how bad some things are about them. I only know that the neck 34" and "tighter" string spacing than normal 6 strings. All I want to know is if the neck and string spacing is comparable to a Ibanez SR506, because my old school had the 5 string version and I found the spacing too tight for slapping, poping and tapping. I don't need any questions for a Cort A6, played one before, beautiful string spacing.
