The copper windings on these strings butt right up to the agraffes. Impossible tuning or what?
The strings were certainly replacements and they had either been made incorrectly, or more likely, measured incorrectly. Either way, whoever fitted them didn’t take any steps to rectify (except maybe rather hurried ones out of the door).
I couldn’t see any other probable causes such as a cracked frame or soundboard issues or some type of catastrophic loss of downbearing. Altogether quite an unusual problem. Life’s never dull!
