How often do you or should you change guitar strings? Only when they break or does the sound deteriorate as the strings get more 'worn.'
I've had my guitar for about 2.5 yrs and haven't changed the guitar strings yet
and oh! I last used my guitar on Sunday, took it out yesterday to find that the strings have gone dark colour and lost their new-ness and even gone a bit rough (rust/oxidation?). So I scratched it off the string and wiped it down.
I must have forgotten to wipe under the strings!
I've read of people really trying to skimp and save by taking off their strings, boiling them, rubbing them down, polishing them, etc...
Any of you tried any of the above? If so, does it work?
