    How far is it from the ball to the end of the winding on short-scale (30") strings?
  2. Every brand is different, some by a significant amount (maybe as much as 2".)

    Some short-scale sets are too short for a 30" scale bass with a string through body (D'addario - buy medium scale instead.) Other short sets fit such a bass just fine (DR, Fender.)

    I believe SIT Strings publishes their short scale sets as having 32-1/2" windings.
