Re: How often do you change your strings?
Apparently metal strings react over time and use to tension, more or less acidic sweat on your fingers and others factors. They just sound muted after a while.
I don't wait to break a string to replace it. In fact I'll change the whole set and be done with it.
With the trem on the Wolfgang I find it actually very easy, since the mechanism is pegged against the guitar body and isn't floating anymore.
Thank you Ed!
Also I recently started to wound my strings from the top, using the brass stop at the headstock. There certainly won't be any sliding going on there!
