I used to use regular strings on my acoustics, but I got tired of changing them every month or two. I highly recommend using Elixir coated strings - I prefer the Nanowebs. If you can't afford these, the next best thing is to wipe down your strings after you're done playing for the day. If you're already wiping down your guitar anyway, this can just become part of your routine. I tried using Fast Fret by GHS, but it didn't seem to work all that well on acoustic strings. The stuff is totally amazing on steel electric strings, however. I've gone from changing strings every two months on my 5 electrics to once every 10 to 12 months. No kidding. The other thing to watch out for is your humidity level. If your humidity level is too high, it will corrode the steel strings and hardware on your guitars. If you can keep your guitars out on a floor stand, or off the wall, that may also help.

I don't believe that the two unwound strings on the elixirs are coated. Cleartones definitely are though, so check those out as well.

I have a question, could TS use a dehumidifier?

Or would that damage the guitar by making it too dry?
I live in a temperate climate so I don't have to deal with that stuff...

I hate d'dario for some reason. every time i use them they feel rusted right out of the box. Ernie ball's are great on electric and I use elixers on my acoustic.
this is a post. there are many like it but this one is mine

The most important thing is to make sure the guitar stays between 40-60% relative humidity. If he's over or near 60% then yes, that might be a good option. Otherwise you could damage the guitar, and that's no good either.
