Default BSR-5 Elite wide neck measurements

Hi, is the neck of a BSR-5 string (wide) with 19mm string spacing at the bridge much wider than than neck of a BSR-5 with standard 18mm string spacing at the bridge?
Thx, Dirk

Bridge is 1mm wider per string and nut is 1mm wider per string.

Currently we are only making 18mm models.

This might change in the future as far as offering this as a custom item.

Mostly, we are making the basses first, and then selling them.

Very few people order the 19mm wider model.

From my recollection only about 1 in 500 or so on average on 5s, 1 in 1000 on 6s. Approximately.
