    I have recently acquired an original Fender Mustang which has seen a few gigs but is still beautiful. :)

    The strings on it seem quite loose and flappy and don't seem long enough as the main winding doesn't reach the nut. What guage and type of string do I need????

    Thanks
     
  2. Short scale strings are a bit short for the Mustang, so I would go with Medium Scale. I have D'Addario ELX 170M on mine and am content. These are roundwounds, I have not yet tried flats on my Mustang but have heard good things!
