I am really getting frustrated. I can not seem to find strings to fit my MIM fretless jazz. I have had the same set on it for about 4 years because every set of strings that I buy seems to be the wrong length. Obviously, I have a 34" scale and I would assume that unless otherwise noted, the strings are for a typical 34" scale, right? I have a set of DR Hi-Beam flats and I just bought a set of Fender 9050ML's today. According to another website, the standard length of the wound section is approx. 36.5" for a standard or long scale (34"). For a 35" scale, the wound length is around 38". I also own a Spector 5 string with a 35" scale. I have 3 sets of strings for it, (Rotosound, DR blacks, EB super slinkies) all of which measure 38" of wound string. The old strings on my jazz measure 36.5" of wound string, but the Fenders and DR flats are 38". Basically, only the E string is a problem. I can't be the only one with this problem, or can I? I've searched but I didn't find a specific answer. Can someone else with a Fender please advise me as to what to do? Also, can you humor me and measure the distance from the center of the E tuning peg to the far side of the bridge where the ferrule meets up? Thanks in advance.
