My first guitar (It's actually not playable, but I got it from my aunt) had it's original strings which were 42 years old on it.
It's a worthless guitar though.

Just a question, but why do u know the exact dates? :P

Mine is probably the ones I have on now, which are maybe 8 months to a year at most. I always broke my 9 gauges, and tried some 10's... they never break, but they sound like shiit now.

I remember them because That was the second week I was working my first job you see and I had a set of strings which were like d'addiaros (spelling?) or something, they broke and I decided to get some strings well anyway im good with dates and I had a test the next day but i skipped school to chill and I have a decent memory too also for the electric strings i changed them before i went to my grandmother's going away party and I remember taking the 16th off from work to attend the going away party.

the strings on my epiphone have to be at least 3 years old, they feel really nasty, but they still sound ok.

wow. i play really aggressivly, so i end up changing strings around every 2-6 weeks. although my classical guitar still has the stock strings on it, but the D is unraviling at the fifth fret.

Give or take two months with the ones on my Charvel and Jackson, but they could use a change as they are out of whack in terms of intonation. I play around 4 hours every day though, so given about two hour son each guitar for about 60 days, that isn't bad.
