Do you think it would work? I was just wondering, cause SRV used super glue to bond his skin back together...

Oh well.

well when it dries that **** has a pretty tough coat, I'd do it if I had some, especially since after like..2 weeks my strings get rigid and I can barely play them.

But, how do you get it off? Would you just have to wait?

Heh.

I might try it, cause my fingers hurt just now and I have nothing else to do except play guitar...

i wouldn't personally recommend it.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I just tried it and...

It worked!


But, a guitar string went underneath the glue and ripped about 3 layers of skin off, so it hurts...

Oh well, that's happened to me before, and it goes away by the morrow.

Theres no way it ripped off three layers of skin chico. Thats all the layers of skin that you have.

I know, it felt like I ripped 3 off, you know, exaggerating I think it's called!

Wow... I'd try it but I have callouses already (2 years of bass, 2/3 months guitar), so no need LOL.

Have you tried mittens or thimbles? Nothing circumnavigates good old fashioned callouses from practice like thimbles do. Removing the flesh and exposing the finger bones' hard outer shells, helps too, but now we're getting into the ridiculous... : )
#18
Have you thought about maybe using lower gauge strings? That to me seems like a more reasonable solution than superglue or thimbles and whatnot.

Yah... Play through the pain!
Theres no quick way to toughin your fingers up. So suck it up!
Like a real man. Or woman.
whatever...
#23
Also +1 to the sucking it up. I built my callouses up by sliding my fingers directly against the frets as hard as I could until it felt like my fingers would fall off.

Then I stick my fingers in ice to numb them and did it untill the skin started looking like it was starting to wear off.

Then I played a bass.

it works as a last ditch thing if your fingers start bleeding during a gig or something, but I wouldn't use it regularly.

I thought what SRV did was superglue his fingertips, THEN place them on his shoulder, letting it dry then rip skin off his shoulder to give new skin on his fingers....
