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.

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.

Comment by Phil Manuel on May 4, 2012 at 12:28pm

DJ, personally, it depends on the sound I'm going after.  If I'm going to record, or play with a group, I like to have new strings broken in a bit to settle them.  Though, I changed my strings on my parlor, and found that I like that guitar with older strings with some life in them.  Basically, though I can play without changing for about 3-4 months.  I don't play out much.  I remember in my 'stage' days having to change strings every other day.  Those club dates and travelling were killers on strings.  Cigarette smoke in some of the venues just killed strings, and put a 'tar' coating on them that made them dead.

Since we are talking strings.  How often do you change them?
