same, too bright and rattly for me.
I've just got the B5 open pore black one, it's really really nice for the money. I think it has 18mm string spacing though. The neck is kinda chunky, but feels comfortable enough with the fretboard being like Ibanez flat.Ibanez is the obvious choice for narrow string spacing, but cort also makes models with narrow string spacing. Cort is the manufacturer of all of the Ibanez guitars/basses that are not MIJ. They make incredible basses for really cheap, cheaper than Ibanez. I think the B5 element is around $500
Iirc they're 16.25mm like my X64 (6-string).Carvins
zhanibek#9526 on Gary Hiebner's Discord made this with Djinnbass (Dingwall) and NeuralDSP's B7K Ultra:I've been thinking about just buying a bass plugin after seeing how much a lot of them were going for
I'll second this, my experience is with an Ibanez SRC6, 42mm to... 55mm nut to heel or so neck, Ibanez Tight End 6-string guitar bridge (10.8mm), but yeah. Very fun instruments, one of my favorites, though with the 30" scale you'll be hard pressed to lower the tuning much with available gauges (specialty strings not withstanding).If you're messing around only, try the Squier VI bass. 6 string and feels like it's practically a guitar neck. I've had one, it's def fun and very unique.
the old peavy dyna basses and foundation basses were really nice back in the day and they had narrow spacing. maybe a used example in fine condition could be found out there. these were not low end instruments and were popular about the time they were making the wolfgang guitars. also, the Guild Pilot bass was quite narrow if i recall View attachment 115414
