    Changed strings on two more this morning.

    I feel righteous!

    Same here....I love changing guitar strings and cleaning guitars. I routinely clean my guitars after playing just because I like taking care of stuff. I even enjoy doing it for other people, especially if they have a PRS. Well, really, only if they have a PRS...I've cleaned my brother's SE several times. He doesn't take care of his guitars at all, really - which is fine, of course, it just looks super nice when I get done with it, which is rewarding to me. Our bass player bought my old SE Singlecut, so I help out with that one too when I have the chance.

    I just love guitars and enjoy taking any extra time with them, even if I'm not playing them.

    Im a bad dad too, and I’m addicted to that GHS Fast Fret crap, it totally extends the life of dead and dry strings.

    Y’all are making me feel bad so I’m totally gonna replace the strings on my LV “studio” since I haven’t replaced them in..... years.:oops:

    He’s got the de-tuning thing down already.... I assume he’s into metal.

    So I made a mistake and told my wife about this sorry state of string affairs. That led down a path that I wasn't quite expecting.....

    Her - "It's been how long?"
    Me - "Hahaha....yeah.....two and a half years or more."
    Her - "Look at that wall! Do you realize how much money is hanging there?! Strings are cheap. You need to maintain your guitars!!"
    Me - "Oh....uhm.....bu...."
    Her - "Look in this bin. Do you see how many packs of strings are in there? Why did you even bother to buy them?!"
    Me - "But....."
    Her - "No. If you can't take care of the guitars that you already have then don't even think of talking to me about getting another one!"
    Me - "Buuuuu......."
    Her - "Zip it mister."

    It's been a long time since I was treated like an 8 year old who left his bike out in the rain day after day.....but there it was. Note to self.....don't talk about anything guitar related with the wife for at least three months (it will probably take that long for her to calm down!) .

    So after that I ended up playing for about three hours......still need to change strings.....maybe I will here in a bit while on lunch break......or maybe after work. Maybe tomorrow.....

    I am starting a therapy group as I too have been guilty of these offenses. GPS (Guitar Protective Services) have been called and I am in hot water
