Iv been practicing guitar a real lot, more than normal, and my calouses built up big time, then all of a sudden they got softer, and i stopped for 2 days and have been going at it 3 hours yesterday and today, they are still soft but like hard to but not nearly as hard as a week ago.

Have you by any chance getting you fingers soaked in water, like swimming?

That's what happened to mine, built up calluses and the calluses disappeared, but my fingers don't hurt from playing. It's weird but nice, i dont have to worry about my fingers looking weird because i play.

I read the title like this:

"My Fingers! Has this happened to anyone?"

the my fingers part is like "My stars!"

I'm pretty sure this is a poinless thread though. umm maybe your fingers got wet or something?

So how long can your fingers be wet until your callouses begin to disapear
#7
It's your body. Getting calluses is like getting sore when you work out. They grow, your body realizes this and builds up over them so you don't have that disfiguring look. Every try to flex your muscle when your sore? Same basic principle.

It may not happen to many but who knows.

Well im a competitive swimmer and i swim 9 times a week, usually only 7 but 9 sometimes, and im in the water each day for 2-3 hours and i don't really have callouses but my fingers don't ever hurt, so i wouldn't know to well.

My fingers don't really hurt when I play, sometimes I have calluses there and sometimes I don't.

Yeah that happens to me too. When I start after not playing for an extended period of time, I get calluses, or my fingers get really thick layers of skin. Generally after I keep playing, the calluses start wearing down. Now my fingers feel smooth and I don't have any calluses, but it doesn't hurt when I play either.

Ive built up layers of callouses before...and then during a long solo in which I practiced for hours on end....I literally tore through 3-4 layers of callous ..it looked sick.

It was a sad day. My fingers never hurt when playing anyways though sorry TS.
