    Do any of you know how wide is the string spacing on the classic and confort fingerboard taper alembics?

    Best bet is to ring and ask.
    As there is effectively no 'standard' Alembic and all the parts are custom made, I doubt there would be any difference in charge for just about any spacing you want. The Essence is the only one in the (Aussie) price list that's got a different charge for a custom fingerboard width and string spacing isn't listed in there anywhere. If you wanted something different then I'd guess there's no charge providing that you stay within the bounds of the standard necks, which are reasonably wide anyway. So the answer for a new bass is, just about anything you like.
    For a used one, I'd speak with the seller and get it measured, 'cos you never know what it might be.
