Currently I own all 4-strings but I've always wanted to get a 5-string. My favorite bass lines happen to be of the technical sort, and sometimes I find an extra string (or two) would help. I've tried a few 5-strings and noticed that they have tighter string spacing above the pickups compared to my 4-strings. Particulary the 5-string Ibanez Ergodyne. I really liked the specs for this bass, but when I tried it out the tight spacing totally screwed me up. SO, what I'm looking for are some 5-strings (and 6-strings maybe) that have the so-called "Fender standard" (9/16") string spacing above the pickups. Thanks! EDIT: I'm also VERY interested in tacking on a high C instead of the typical low B.
