*Strings, keys and jacks are traditionally counted from the left (lowest note), although stringing schedules traditionally list wire from the highest note to the lowest, probably because most builders string the treble first. It is confusing, I know; sorry.
The "actual length" is for our reference, although you are welcome to use it, if it is of any help to you. It is the length of the prelooped replacement string we make, which is long enough to replace the longest string of that diameter on the instrument with enough extra for a generous coil. It is not the sounding length.
