You can usually tell it's time to change strings when every not you play past the 7th fret gets progressively off key by microtones

ya, it has to do with a lot of factors....like how often you play and humidity etc. but basically when its becoming increasingly difficult to keep them in tune or you aren't getting the same tone that you're accustomed to.

I just change them when they break. I break strings a lot so it's always worked for me.

I change mine about once a month. You should change them as soon as they start looking nasty (rusty, dirt underneath) and get out of tune faster.

the above is a good pointer.........you'd also want to change them for every show.......i would say every two weeks if you play daily........pro's will change them daily before every show.

Change the strings when they sound pretty dead. by that I mean dull sounding, with very little sustain.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
