    Thought I needed a 5-er. Turned out I don’t need it that often for what I’m playing. So I had to decide which 2 basses I would never let go, and let them go. No lying, it’s heavy (10+ lbs), but the tone is heavenly.

    I got a comfort strap that makes it definitely manageable for 3 set gigs.

    Here’s a previous sale. Videos were included.

    Pretty. I am unclear on the pickups and electronics. One listing shows ebony pickup covers and describes carvin and nordstrom pickups but these pics show yamaha pickups.
    Help me get the whole picture here. Thanks

    Got this question via DM...

    Hi,

    What's the distance from center of G string to center of B string at the bridge?

    Thanks



    I’ve never had that question before.

    It’s 19mm bridge spacing. Spacing is measured from the middle of the saddle, therefore the middle of the string, to the next.
    Distance from the center of the B string to the center of the E string is 19mm.

    5 strings gives 4 spaces between strings at 19mm each. 4 x 19 = 75mm

    I’ll post your question and my answer on the thread because I’ve never had anyone ask that and maybe it’s lost on some others.

    Thanks
