    I've played tight string spacing for awhile now, using a B-305 these days but Steinberger's before.

    Make sure your left wrist isn't bent badly; raise the neck a bit to adjust.

    Try a lighter string gauge; I found my ESP was more work with the heavier strings I had been comfortable with before and my left hand was sore from it. DR High Beams work nicely for me.
