Yes. And I do not know how much more I can tell you without you doing something too.
I have linked you to an article to tell you how to measure your instrument to find the correct strings.
I have told you the winding lengths of the strings I know you have used to determine what is too long or too short...
(the 39" extra long rotosound is the measuments from ball end to silk and does not include the entire silken portion of the string)
Long Scale strings are 36.5-37" long.... If those are too short and 39" is too long then you need to use 38" long strings... Some companies call these extra long and some call it long scale.
Also on the link I provided above it includes a list of string lengths by specific manufacturer. It was literally all you needed to know.
