    Jesus, I don't know if I can even decipher what you're saying :confused:. Are they playable? Yes. They have fairly tight string spacing as the Ibanez Soundgear series. Are they floppy? By this do you mean the 'B' string? If so, yes it's going to be somwhat floppy for the SX basses. Are SX the worse than Fenders? Depends on who you ask and what series you're reffereing to.

    hey!!

    are there nothing against the nice string spacing as fendar?

    because i think i figure how comfortable is fenders..

    and big size boards and body..

    so i should just get one with 4 strings?

    is it worth like trying cheap 5 strings..

    A standard Fender V has 19mm string spacing (the same as their 4 strings) and the SXs have around 17.5mm spacing.

    oh..

    is it because of the bridge?

    or is it the construction limitated of the copyers...

    It's not necessarily the bridge, but the bridge, neck and nut are constraining your string spacing. I have seen an SX 5 with wider string spacing after someone installed an aftermarket bridge.

    I have owned an SX in the past. it was a P-bass.
