I strung two of my guitars, my strat and Les Paul, with D'Addario 10's strings. I store my strat in a cheap gig bag that's left half open all the time, and my Les Paul in it's official Gibson hardcase.

Two months later, the D'Addario's on my strat are rusted and sound lifeless, while the D'Addario's on my Les Paul are still somewhat fresh and a little blackened but don't need replacing yet.

I play both guitars pretty much equally and always wipe down the strings after playing. So, if you want your strings to last longer, store your guitar in a good hardcase rather than leave it on a stand.

If it was obvious, less people would keep their guitars on stands all the time.
