16.5mm string spacing

Will 16.5mm string spacing ever be an option on a 4 string bass ? :(

The Icon 5 has smaller string spacing (17mm versus rest of Kiesels at 19mm).

16.5 on a 4 string is highly unlikely. I have only seen a narrow 4 string from one maker in the past. And I can't remember the name. It was custom.

17mm spacing is available on the Icon 5 and the Vanquish 5. And their bridges can adjusted up or down 1-2mm.

All 6 string basses are 16.5mm spacing, with the same adjustable bridge for the basses with headstocks.
