    I know the string spacing of the old Gotoh bridges was 19mm. The new 4 string bridges are 20mm. What are the 5 string ones?

    Sadowsky 5 strings 3/4 = 19mm

  4. I believe 19mm on the 5's (which I believe is close to 'classic Fender 4 string spacing)... it feels GREAT with the 34" scale... kind of the 'best of all worlds for me'... plenty of room for right hand technique, but an overall 'small feeling' neck, IMO.

    I think its 19 mm , very comfortable to play with.

    Feels like 19mm to me... in other words, poifect! (for me)

    Our 5 string bridges are 19mm.
    4 string bridges are 20mm (probably the only fixed spacing bridges on the market that align with the pole pieces on a jazz bass).
