    I just put a new set of strings and I accidently put on strings that were a little bit to short. On the E and A strings the windings go about a 1/2 a centimeter into the fret board. It plays fine and sounds fine as far as I can tell, but does anyone know if this will affect anything?
    Thanks for any help,
     
  2. It won't affect anything, except for the sound. The silks going through the nut will affect the transfer of string vibration to the nut.
