Hey, Doug. I am playing a show exactly 9 days from now. I plan to change my strings tonight before a 3 hour practice followed by a 2 our practice and another 3 hour practice next week before the show. Does this give me sufficient time to break the strings in nicely? I have broken strings before a show and I want to avoid this, however, I have sanded the cradles on the bridge in hopes of preventing string breakage.
