I usually change my strings every 3 to 4 months regardless of how much I've been playing. Sometimes I'm lazy and it'll stretch to 5/6 months. They definitely sound and look done by that point.

Thats a close race for sure. I would have to go with yamaha, I like the sound of the englemann spruce and the wider nut(for my sausage fingers) makes it easier to fingerpick.
