To all those out there that have 34" scale 5 strings that suffer from B strings that are impossible to intonate and have bad tone, use a 125 B string instead of a 130. I just did that to two fivers that I have that are 34" scale. I had a Spector 5 that was a 34" scale that could handle a 130 B but my copy Fender 5 and my Ernie Ball S.U.B can't so I went with 125's and problem solved. They're like new basses all over again to me. I'm actually about to order a Traben Array 5 that is a 35" scale. I'll put a 130 B on it. Hope this works for you. Good luck.
