As it says in the specs, this specific model has a very narrow string spacing, 14 mm.


Yup, 14mm at the bridge and tapering to a more 'standard' 9mm at the nut which gives it both a narrow string spacing but also a more gentle taper than other 6 string basses. It's Gerald Veasley's budget version of his Ibanez signature bass, the Ibanez GVB1006, and the string spacing was a key specification for him to enable him to more easily play his jazz chordal patterns; it also makes it ideal for 'classical' bass which I use mine for.


Sadly no longer in production and they don't come up for sale very often. GLWTS.

Great bass. If you're interested in this, don't be put off by the narrow string spacing. It takes ~30 min to get used to it, and then you are completely uninhibited to enjoy making all the mistakes you typically make, just more efficiently.
