    Early ESP 5s have a pretty narrow string spacing and can be had used for about half your budget.

    I know the Stuart Hamm Urge I had a 32" scale, but the number of strings is wrong.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.

    Oh, and you could get Dave Pushic to build you a bass to your specs.

    No really, narrow spacing, just pop some new pickups and a pre amp in, and you would be well under price range, have a great bass, and killer tone.Soundgears have narrow string spaceing. and come in 5 and 6 strings.

    The Soundgear is a good recommendation for people with small hands.

    The MTD Kingston 5 with its assymetrical neck is comfortable for people with small hands as well.

    The only bass that I can think of in your price range with a J shape is the Fender Jazz V. The Pedulla Rapture J2 is similar to a Jazz shape, but is out of your price range.
