Stingray 5 string spacing ?

    I've decided to get a NICE bass. I've played everything I can find for $1300 or less. I really like the Peavey Cirrus, and the L-2000, although on the L-2000, I can't find one with a neck that feels like my SB-1.

    I had always heard that the Stingrays were "one trick ponies", so I never considered one. Well I accidently picked one up, and I love 'em now. I GOTTA have one. I've never really used a 5 string. Only picked 'em up in the stores every once in a while. It's very awkward, but I think I would like to play a five string. The Stingray seems to be more comfortable than most of the other fives I've tried.

    SO......does anybody know what the string spacing is at the bridge on a Stingray 5 ? The EB website doesn't have that info.

    I WILL have a Musicman. I'm just trying to decide between a Stingray 5 or a Sterling. I don't want to get the Sterling and wish that I'd gotten the Stingray 5, and I don't want to get the 5 and not be able to play the damned thing.

    Anybody been through this themselves and have any advice ?

    Go with the five man.. I don't think you'll wish for anything else IMO... I really don't think my bass is a one trick pony... I can vary the sound..... I can't go from extremely smooth lows to screaming punchy highs.. but The stingray is of course made for its sound. and what an amazing sound it is..
