    I have some Elixers on my old bass that i'm taking the frets off, and I barely used the strings (and supposedly Elixers get like 6 years or something,) so I was wondering if I can put them on my new bass which are stock strings I think.

    Would this be a terrible job? It would only be temporarily.

    though. i have re-used elixir strings. if you takethem off and let them sit for a few weeks, you can get another 2-3 gigs out ofthem.

    6 years tho.
