    I changed mine after I took up playing 6 months ago when I popped a string, but I don't know how long those strings had been on there before. It had been in my basement for years.

    If you're just curious --- every 3 weeks. I have to have "ping".

    If you're looking for what is "right" --- your ears are always right.

    Now underwear, that's different --- the vernal equinox and the summer solstice.

    Seems this poll get re-polled every couple months, lol...I change mine ever 3-6 months. I use ground-wounds (half-flats) so they get beat up fairly easy adn I lose my brightness after 3 or 4 months.
