Because that has been my experience with them?
Is this some kind of a test? Why are you responding to everything I say with a question? I don't know what's in your head, man... That's why I'm asking.
Honestly, I had not realized that.
What is this change of strings of which we speak?
I was afraid you thought I was being snarky, or something... Just the same, I wouldn't blame the manufacturer because the strings rusted. Any strings will rust in a humid climate. Who knows how long those strings were on the guitar before you bought it?
When strings get old and tired, corroded, or just plain break, some people simply get a new guitar, but some of the more frugal members of the forum have figured out a way to change just the strings themselves and reuse the rest of the guitar. It’s a real kickass money saving mod just about anyone can learn to do. Part of the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle movement I think.
I cant remember the last time I changed the strings on my electrics. The AL3010 easily a year and the 3100 could be two. Played them every week and they sounded good. I use EB Skinny top heavy bottoms.
I haven't had time to change the stock strings on my new SE but played it at service this morning. Not terrible strings, just too light.
I used to think the same thing, but Martin Lifespan strings work great for me. I would have never tried them if they hadn’t come on a new guitar.
I like the D's. I like the consistency. As we see here, much depends on climate and body chemistry.
I think mine last longer when I eat a lot of Bacon.
Fan of D's here, also Ernie Ball, and some of the pre dead coated strings. LOL I change the strings on my Epi's (the guitars I play the most) about every month, sometimes 2. It just depends on how often I jam with the boys.
Ever since I switched to pure nickel wrapped strings I get at least 2 to 3 times the life over regular set. I hate changing strings but always change factory set because almost always 9s and I have to setup guitar with 11s as my standard
