    Picked up for cheap an Agile 5 string acoustic/electric for noodling around with and I already snapped the B when tuning it. Very shoddy looking strings, but I had read about this before I got it.

    However, I'm having a difficult time finding.replacement strings for the 32" scale. Carvin has a "5 string acoustic/elec" set, bronze/phosphor but they're technically for 34". Can I just trim them a bit extra to fit the 32"?

  2. i snapped a string on my electric short scale and the only extra strings i had around were extra long scale, i strung them up and just clipped extra, didnt have any issues(bessides the difficulty of cutting them) hope that helps
