    Does anybody know off hand the spacing on a sonus 5 string special might be ????? Thanx;) :confused:
  2. I would compare the string spacing on the one that I have as between an American Jazz and a Musicman Stingray 5. I haven't played it for a minute so I could be wrong. I have the Sonus 5/2.

    Actually, the 5/2 is a different beast, it has 3/4" spacing and a 35" scale length, the Special has 11/16" spacing and a 34" scale length.
  5. Thanks Gard!

    I didn't know it was a 35 scale though, that's great ! I knew that the spacing was pretty wide but that's the way I like it. That's why it's going to be hard for me to adapt to the Musicman Stingray 5 since that spacing is pretty close in comparison.
