    I tend to sweat quite a bit through my hands when playing. I've played bass for a many years and have just learned to live with it, but I go through strings quickly and have to wipe down the neck religously after (or sometimes during) each session . Has anyone found any remedies or workarounds that work? I've actually heard there is a surgical procedure that can remove/deactivate sweat glands in your hands. (also a problem for another hobby of mine... rock climbing).

    Thanks!
