Well it really depends upon how often you play. I play about two hours every day or so therefore I change my strings every couple of weeks.

Haha I dunno...basic electric strings. When I was at my local store, the guy told me to change them at often (and no, he wasn't trying to get me to buy more strings).

you don't have to change them that much... do you take them all off... and then put them all on again... or do you do them one at a time..? because taking them all off (and then have no strings on) and then putting them all on... really can reek havoc on your neck

I took them all off at once, but now I won't. Thanks for the tip, Matt.

yeah... because the strings put alot of resistance on the neck... and when you take them off... your neck can bend slightly... and if you keep doing that... over a period of yrs it can really weaken your neck... and it won't sound as good...

i try to play 4+ hours every day, but on the 3 days per week i work i only get in 2 or so (parents love me playing at 11 pm till 1 lol)

i use elixer nanowebs so i really only need to change them once a month or so, they hold up really well. I most often wait a month or until they start to lose their tone, usually the month comes first, that's why i like them so much.

What do U mean buzzing?

How long have U had the guitar and what gauge strings have U got on it now? Are they thinner than the last ones U had on?
