string spacing q

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by blackreverend, Oct 25, 2005.


  1. hey all,
    I'm considering buying a Roscoe bass in the near future, and the string spacing is 18mm I have played a Ken Smith with 19mm spacing and it was too big for me.

    Does anyone know what the spacing on a Carvin 6 is? Thats what I have now and I want somthing a little bigger, but not as big as the
    Smith. Will the Roscoe work? What are other reccomendations?

    Mahalo,

    In the future, please do not double post. Try to put your thread in the right forum. If it should be moved, a moderator will move it.

    As to the string spacing, I believe that Carvin 6ers have 17mm spacing at the bridge, but I am not sure. As to the Roscoe "working", that all depends on if you are comfortable with it or not.
