    I would've very curious if you could verify the width at the 12th fret of the neck or the exact string spacing.

    OMG...
    :)

    btw, i'm pretty sure that spacing is adjustable with this bridge, and can go down to 18mm...

    If I were you! !!!!

    I WOULD HOLD ON to this Bass.....
    7 more years ....this model Will become a VINTAGE ....!
    once is Gone ....It's not coming back to you ....!


    Why don't you upgrade the pickups or the preamp .....maybe
    That's the answer to your obsession of selling this bass ....!

    Just a Thought! !!!!

    I appreciate your comments, but can't justify holding onto this bass for 7 years :)
