Hey, so I guess you could say I neglect my guitars. In that sense I mean I leave it a LONG time between changing strings.

Today I decided to replace the old dirty worn strings with new pristine strings and DAMNNNNN son. I never noticed how much of difference it made having new strings. It's like owning a new instrument.

Never going to wait this long to change again for sure.

How about you guys? How long do you wait before changing?

Every few weeks on my normal guitars when I'm gigging regularly. On my slide guitars, a month or two. As soon as I notice the intonation drift more than a couple of cents, I turf them.

Just changed my Tele's strings for the first time since January (it was sitting at my parents' house after I moved, again) due to a broken high E. The difference is ridiculous. Also, I've found I don't feel comfortable playing on anything lighter than 12s. Hellooooooo carpel tunnel.

I left mine for over a year XD

I use 10's, probably heavier gauge on my acoustic, but those are stock from Martin so no idea.

Usually I don't change strings until 1 breaks. Then I change the set.
Sometimes I will change them if I notice a big degrade in sound quality or feel.
This was true when I was gigging regularly, too.
