christmas of 06.. (when i first got it) i play it about every day, though ive changes the high and low e a couple times.. its a fender mim, and i tune from drop d, eb, to e alot. ive never changed all my strings on any guitar(still stock fender bullets), i dont know how to properly, nor have i compared the tone
#11
Well I went for about 9 months or so on my Squier Strat, not sure how, but I did.

I've gone from December untill now on my Ibanez RG, haven't changed strings once. I'm happy with my sound so i'm not sure whether or not to. Last time I changed mine was on my strat, and that was a f.cking mess.
#12
I think I usually wait about 6 months before I change my strings. I know I should change my strings more often, and when I change my strings I get a really nice tone on the E, A and D string that sounds kind of metallic (I don't know if that effect happens on all guitars). I only change my strings when the intoneation goes really bad. Before I changed my strings 2 weeks ago, the 12th fret on my high E sounded closer to an F.

Uh the longest was about 6 month months on my acoustic.. I was dying to get them changed.

I've gotten 6 months out of my Dadarido set 13 gauge strings. then the high e broke. to much metal. Be aware I kept my guitar at drop A tuning though. On my guitar I KEEP TUNED AT STANDARD tuning I can get 4 months same brand of stings just a gauge 9 cus i cot flyod rose on that one.
#23
About 5 months. I really cba, with ma floyd rose it's so much hassle. Plus I use D'arrios or elixirs, so they last well.

Probably nearly a year. When I broke a string on my first guitar I had my sisters husband restring it for me and just never restrung it afterwards, lol. I felt the strings on that guitar not long ago and they are grouse feeling/smelling lol.
#28

Well, on my two active guitars (for my band), probably 1 or 2 months. For my semi-hollow '50s Epi - probably 3 years now as I rarely take it out and play it. For my old junker 1st guitar (Squier) - probably 1 year. For my "camping" acoustic guitar - I haven't changed the strings since my sophmore year in highschool.... which would be approximately 11 years ago!!!

I'm still using the stock strings on the beginners guitar I bought 5 months ago. I play it every day. A lot.

9 months on my nylon string. When I got new strings it sounded so much better that it gave me the illusion that I was a better player. I just love the sound of new strings.

i just got started on guitars when i got a nylon string in last sept and its funny because i dont really remember any difference in tone since im not experienced, but i know they should be changed just by looking at them. so i guess 8-9 months
#39
These nylon strings I have on my Eterna have lasted me about 2 years so far. They still sound as good as you would expect.
#40
It took four months of straight playing on stock Ibanez strings. One broke so I bought a set of Ernie Ball super slinkies.

I swear, I must've have been listening to my old strings through my ass, because they were crap compared to these new strings.
