: How do you measure string lenght? I am new to uprights, and have been scanning
: pages looking for a used one, and it seems that string lenght makes a
: difference. I would guess that if you get used to one size, switching to
: another may be a pain. If so, do you measure the string lenght from the nut
: to the bridge?

: Any advice is helpful.

: Thanks

Yes, from the nut to the bridge is correct. On average, it's usually around 42"
but it varies from instrument to instrument.
