    What is the string spacing on Benevente's 5 string basses? Is there a difference between the vortex and SC spacing? Someone who owns one or knows the answer let me know. Thanks

    Same as a "normal" 4 string (19mm?)

    The singlecut and vortex are treated the same...no difference in neck width.
     
  4. They come with the Hipshot A bridge so you can adjust string spacing.


    I had a Vortex and wanted a tighter spacing.

    You can order a Benavente with a narrower bridge. Standard they come with the A-type hipshot bridge at 19mm but hipshot also makes a 16-17mm bridge as well.

    Thanks
