    i bought some fender super 8250's and strung thru the body. the plastic coating on the string up by the tuners is on top of nut. is this bad?
  2. Although I don't have alot of info on this, I think it's bad. Gotta dampen the sustain a bit by having any felt or coating riding on the nut. Since you're going string-thru, you may need a longer scale set to keep that off the nut.

    When buying a different set of strings (especially with felt), I always measure the exact distance I need from ball end to nut to make sure the felt isn't gonna be riding the nut..
