    Hello beautiful bass folks.

    I'm currently in the market for a bass primarily intended to be my 8 string guitar equivalent. I will be tuning the whole thing up a half step. A four string would be ideal but it seems to be much harder to find any with less than 19mm string spacing.

    I've been playing my Ibanez SR 5 string with 16.5mm string spacing for years and I've found that any wider is rather uncomfortable for me.

    So these Jackson are at the top of my list (I likem aesthetically and spec wise) but any other recommendations would be awesome too.

    Not looking to spend much more than $500. I've found a few threads online (including 7org) talking about how these Jackson Concerts have really close string spacing well suited for pick playing but never an actual measurement. Can't find the spec anywhere online of course either.

    Thanks everyone :cheers:
