  1. Does anyone know the string spacing at the bridge for a 5 string Bongo. I have heard it is a little tight. I hope this is true (without being too extreme). I like a fairly close string spacing on a five.

    If you have ever played a Stingray 5, it is the same. Around 17.5 mm.
  3. No, no SR5s, just 4s, but I did own a Spector 5 string, which I really liked the string spacing on, it just didnt sound all that great and weighed a ton. Acording to the handy dandy online measurement conversion tool, it equals .69", just a hair more than my Spector's. This sounds great. Gotta get the local higher end music shop to get one in.

    Thanks for the help.
