get the EXL115's by Dadarrio - 11-49 - they dont rust for ages
The 60s are gone, dope will never be as cheap, sex never as free, and the rock and roll never as great.

Put on new strings, and wipe them off with a clean towel after every time you play it.

HOw about wiping down your strings everytime you play, it saves time and money and is worth the effort to do so, you lazy bastard

get new strings or fold a piece of sandpaper over them (one at a time) and slide it up and down the neck

Yea... get new strings. A lot less hassle than trying to fix old ones...

You might also get a de-humidifier for wherever you keep your strings. That could cut down on the rust.

Haha hellz yeah i havn't played my first act for months and it was like the strings were 10 years old..i was afraid i would get tetanus if i changed them!

new strings definitely. itll feel better in ur hands anyway.

how about one of those dunlop corrosion inhibitors? they'll aid in preventing rust not only on ur strings but on ur hardware or anything that's metallic on ur guitar. I use them and they work for my LP.
