    I currently own a fender p bass and an ibanez sr505. I have found that I prefer the fenders string spacing more. Is it possible to install a bridge with a larger string spacing or would my strings be near unplayable since they would be closer to the edge of the board?

    The Fender has 19mm spacing and IIRC the Ibanez has 16.5 mm spacing. You could possibly get 17mm spacing out of it but the fretboard is not wide enough to accomodate much more than that.
     
  3. The neck is designed for a specific string spacing so it's not really doable, sorry. Sell your Ibanez and get another Fender. Or get an Ibanez BTB that has a similar spacing.
