doesn't the online shops list string spacing in their descriptions of the bass guitars their offering, especially the 5 string and over models? Even the websites of manufacturers I've been visiting, doesn't list string spacing I'm still looking for my 2nd bass. I've come to the conclusion that I want a versatile active 5 string bass, and the limit is about $700 USD. My problem is that I have BIG (blue collar) fingers, and my current bass (OLP MM clone, 5 string) has only 15 mm (.059) string spacing. It's very uncomfortable to play If anyone has recommendations for basses with wide string spacing, and within price range, I'd be very happy to know. If a 5 string with my specifications can't be found, I might just surrender, and buy the Fender Geddy Lee 4 string (even though it's not active).
