GHS 3020 shortscale flats on a Fender Mustang?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by halloweenfiend, Oct 3, 2009.

  1. Hey can someone who knows tell me whether or not GHS Precision Flatwounds 3020 (shortscale set) will fit on a Fender Mustang? The packaging says 30-31 inch scale but I think that's a tad too short, I dunno so if someone who has tried will tell me that'd be awesome. Thanks, -Jon.
  2. The Mustang is short scale, isn't it? Should fit. I like the GHS strings, too.

    you need strings for a 32" bass (because of the string through body). d'addario calls these "medium scale". i use chromes on my mustang and love them. good luck!
  4. AH! Didn't know it was string-through. Yes, medium scale strings.

    Also true of the Hofner Beatle-bass style short scale basses because of their using a floating bridge and tailpiece rather than a solid body bridge.
