...when trying to save a buck. Here in Indiana going to flea markets can pass as fun a lot of times, and at my local one they had some packs of these strings and D’Addario EXL110 for dirt cheap. I now see why the fenders are priced so low lol. Anybody ever had this happen before? They would probably work for a headstock with 3 per side, but not even close on a fender headstock. Kinda odd considering it’s their brand . I had already put the wound strings on before I discovered this little problem, so I at least learned a lesson for the 5 bucks I spent: always double check the string length before installing lol.
