Guys my hands and fingers seem to pour out acid from my pores when I play guitar. I have to get new strings every week and a half since they seem to have rusted acid on them after that long. Besides wiping them off any suggestions on anything else? Also I have used all types of strings and even the elixers didn't last more than 2 weeks.

HELP :ball:

my hands are like that too lol i hate it...but i found that elixir strings last fairly long...they just put anti-rust stuff on them and theyre coated so they do last longer

I hate changing strings on my acoustic so I spent the $$'s and bought coated ...they are lasting a hell of a long time.

The only other thing to try is simple...wash your hands before you play.

I also wipe the strings with lemon oil before I play.

Exactly! Even when I am gigging, I try to go in the bathroom right before hitting the stage and wash my hands. Of course no telling where the barmaid has been! :D :D
