    Tried it on a few basses, and it works as long as the strings aren't too dead.
  4. I could have sworn I saw this same thread a few weeks ago.

    I haven't tried it yet, but that's because I like flats or dead rounds :p

    I tried it and it works, though not as good as my usual routine of soaking the strings overnight in acetone.
    Good to do in a situation where you are pressed for time.
