    Beautiful bass! What's the string spacing at the bridge?

    19 would be awesome! But, I’m guessing it’s a more common spacing. Anxious to hear.

    The BB405 bridge used on these are 19mm. I can confirm that as I have one of the stock models. Good bass for the money.

    For what it's worth...
    I have gotten several complements on my Michael Kelly Element 5 when I have used it live. That said, I will say the nut slots needed to be lowered and the frets needed to be leveled when I got mine new, but it was from a group of "seconds". If this one plays good, it is a really good bass!

    Can you please verify the weight. The site says that it should be much lighter

    My bathroom scale weighs it at 9.6 pounds. I don't know what the accuracy is below 20 pounds on a scale that is designed to weigh a typical adult.
