I haven't laid hands on a 5 in 20 years. That's right. And, my current band has dropped a hint, mainly the git player who I think would like for me to get one so he could borrow it, that it would really be nice for some of our stuff. So i looked around. I find that specs on the lower end stuff seem to be kind of sketchy. My biggest dislikes about five strings has always been string spacing and never really getting a good b string sound. Now I have a rig that will handle fat strings but the preference for wider nuts and spacing hasn't changed. Here's my questions. What is out there that has wider spacing, cheap(3-400 or less) used, and since my local craigslist a veritable wasteland, easy to find say on the GC used lists? I prefer passive but it seems most 5'ers are active. Is this necessary to make the B sound good? I see tons of Ibanezezs, some Yamahas, ESP's and a few Squiers. What fits the bill?
