Likely a stupid question regarding string silks

    So, I got a shorty. It’s my first in many years. It’s a hollowbody and the SS Chromes I got for it are way too short, so I used a set of full scales that I had. On the E and G, the silks wrap completely around the tuning keys and start to wrap some of the bare string. Will this cause any issues? Sorry if this is a stupid question, but, rest assured, it will not be my last.

    Pic, if needed:


    BTW, I’m aware that the strings wrap around the posts more times than necessary. I will take care of that when the ultralite tuners get here.

    Thank ye.

    No issue with wrapping the bare string. Wrap on.
