    ok, i just visited d'addario's site,they say the long scale will fit 34"-36" scale. so these should work..?...
  3. i just looked at the BP String Thing and they say that the Chromes are 36.25" long.i'd say that the stringing through the bridge would take up another " after the 35" which would proceed to leave you 1/4" not alot to wrap around posts if its a straight 4 peg set up or even a 2+2. i'd try to find longer ones

    I will second that. I JUST tried to put them on my 35" scale Peavey Grind and they DO NOT FIT. The winding is about 1/4" short of the nut. SOB!!!!!! NOW what do I do with a brand new set of strings that DON'T FIT. F&#K.

    I will third that. They did NOT fit my 35" MTD Heir. Non returnable item. $40.00 lesson. Apparently you need the Super Longs.
