    I didn’t know that. Or even how it works. Squished an extra string on a five string neck for extra tight string spacing? (Going to look for photos now)

    From what I read, he liked the larger 6 string body, but with the smaller 5 string neck. The 6 string bridge is the same as well so you basically have a tighter string spacing due to the narrower nut width on the 5 string neck! Due to these specs and the fact John only plays a 6 string I really doubt that they would make a 4 or 5 string model, I think it will only be the actual bass he plays, which is the 6 string, but this is just my opinion now.

    That’s what I was thinking regarding the neck.
    Either way I’m looking forward to seeing the finished item how ever it comes

    I watched a few video interviews. His bass is basically a 6 string bongo body size, but with the 6 strings on a 5 string neck. But the profile has also been made more D shaped than the normal 5string bongo neck.

    He also doesn't use the EQ on the bass at all, just the two pickups on evenly.
