So I have a Spector NS-5CRFM which I have owned for about six months. As much as I love dead strings, I've decided it's time for a change. I went to the Sam Ash about an hour away from here and picked up a set of Elixirs with Nano-web coating or something. As I begin to change them I notice that they don't fit. The spot on the bridge to insert the string is obviously made for exposed core strings or what have you. So my question is this: How do other Spector owners or people with similar style bridges deal with this problem? I don't want to have to drive and return them, but I really don't want to lose my fifty dollars. Do I need to buy a specific type of string or can I just "fix" these to fit by cutting away some of the bottom? I can put them on but about 0.25" sticks out of the bridge. Thank you in advance for any suggestions or comments.
