I suffer from 6-string GAS. How does the string spacing on the 506 compare to "standard Fender"?
16,5mm, it is pretty tight. Ever played a Warwick sixer? It has the same spacing. Extremely comfortable to play if you can manage the spacing, some just don't like it. I have a 6 with 15mm, and I find it very comfortable even when slapping. Try it.
Fender standard spacing is about 20mm, 3,5mm doesn't sound like it would be a big difference, but it is. Some like tighter spacing, some hate it.
It is a great sixer for the price though
Thank you Jonah - that gave me something to think about. 16,5 mm is a wee bit tighter than my Tobias Standard 5 with 17mm. I can stand it, but after a few hours my right hand is tired and aching. This doesn´t happen with any of my Fenders.
16.5 mm on the ibanez
switching from that to a P bass is a B**** and is not my favorite thing to do...
Ibanez BTB 6 stings are 18mm
For me it´s the other way around...
Very tight compared to a standard Fender... I can play either comfortably, however, the depth of the Ibby's neck prevents me from buying one.
What bass is that [15mm]?
The one at the right:
