Following recent work by Lambiase and Nesterenko we study in detail the interquark potential for a Nambu–Goto string with point masses attached to its ends. We obtain accurate solutions to the gap equations for the Lagrange multipliers and metric components and determine the potential without simplifying assumptions. We also discuss the Lüscher term and argue that it remains universal.
