MM (not Major Metal!!) basses will live as one of the best ever produced. But the question of spacing comes to mind on their 5 strings basses. If you had a choice would you leave it alone, make it wider (ex. Fender 5, Sadowsky 5 type spacing) or make it narrower (ex. old Steinberger 5- 5 strings on a 4 string neck). Me, I would vote wider. And I would own at least one if it was!!
