Hmm...that might explain why the flat is breaking so quickly after it starts to wind on the peg...but I'm still running out of silk wrap before I get to that point. I shouldn't be running out of wrap though should I? I'm cutting the string 5 inches past the tuner so I'm not cutting too much off intially.
Scale on a EBMM Stingray is 34 inches...and it's about 35 and some change from ball end to nut. La Bella's specs point to using the long scale strings for this.
I just feel like there isn't enough wrap on these g-strings...if I had an inch more, I'd be golden. The other strings are fine - plenty of wrap left over after getting the string in tune.
