    Just curious if you all know of a 35" scale 5 string passive jazz w/ 16.5 - 17.5mm string spacing exists? I'm sure I could get one built, but I'm curious if there is something similar that I could buy off the shelf.

    The closest I can find would be the Lakland JO5, but it has 19mm spacing. While it is a quality bass, I had a 55-01 and just wasn't comfortable with the wider 19mm spacing.

    The closest I can find is the Carvin XB75 which is kind of jazzy I believe available with the stacked humbuckers or MM style pickups. It looks like it has an active 3 band system. I'd love to find something off the shelf, though.

    What's the string spacing on a DJ5? Or for that matter, as JO5?

    Edit - 19mm. Nevermind.
