Hey, I have been playing guitar for about 6 months now, but my guitar was laying around for about 2 years before that collecting dust. It has never had a change of strings. The other day, I was playing and my A string just snapped in front of my face. Luckily I had another electric guitar (very cheap) that no one used and I just took the A string off that one and used it for my guitar. My point is, should I buy new strings?
Sure, unless they sound and look fine..
Yep. I generally change my strings every month but it really depends on the use.
YES!! change them..i usually change mine every 6 months. sometimes more if i break a string or if they get really dirty
Thanks for the reply guys. I should also note that I play rigorously every day, several hours usually so I am pretty sure that they have been used. So thanks again, I will purchase some soon.
