    Does anyone know what is the string spacing in Fender Jazz Custom shop 5 stringer? I know it is not 17mm , but not sure if its 18mm or 19mm.
    I've heard that because of the slotted saddles the spacing can be changed from string to string. (18mm-19mm.) is it true. If it is 18mm is it to tight? I play 19mm string spacing just want to make sure its not a huge change!

    Thanks

    I think it's 19mm. It felt a lot similar to my Alleva Coppolo LM5 which is 19mm at the bridge. Fender doesn't make those Custom Classic 5s anymore do they? That's sad. That is one Fender 5 I would have bought. Either that one or the FMT/QMT 5. I don't care for the Fender 5s they make today.

    Pretty sure it's actually 18mm. The QMT5 I owned was not as wide as my MTD.
