@Ron ... If it was USA made, that's aplus.  unfortunaely they are still producing some ulta low-end crap under the Harmony name that is made in China.  I tried to recue oen last year, but it was just so bad that i judgerd it beyond redemption  and sold it at my yard sale for $20 ... The newer Chinese Harmony junk tries to emulate the Martin headstock by saying "Harmony since 1989" or some such nonsense.  These guitars are pure garbage

I pop in to Sam Ash for a few minutes to check out stuff and saw a used Harmony (USA made) guitar.  It was priced cheap at $65 but the sound was awful and there were dead frets.  I passed although I am thinking of getting a folk size or parlor size guitar as all I have are Dreadnoughts.  That would have been a good bottle neck delta blues guitar.  But I don't know how to play bottle neck slide.  The guitar could have come out of an old Sears catalog.

That is one pretty bird. How about a back shot where one can see the grain pattern?

I have found that I change strings when I have to play at a venue.  Like Phil, I change them in advance so they settle. If I am have no where to play for awhile I find I don't change them till I do.  I have left strings on as long as 3 months(in the winter, very dry here) and change them as often as a week apart. But I have used the same kind of strings for years so I pretty much know when they start to degrade.  If I get any oxidation I change the immediately.

Comment by Jud Hair on May 4, 2012 at 12:52pm

I go by actual playing time rather than by looking at the calendar.  In general ... for coated, I change every 60-80 hours of play, for uncoated every 30-40 hours of play.  Since I play about 2 hours per day, this is just an average I've come around to after going through dozens of sets of strings the last couple of years.
