    Any news on elixirs anti-rust?

    Haven't seen anything on their site for a while, being hopelessly optimistic. I've had the current set on my guitar for a while and the alternatives are eh... Wondering if they got their anti-rust strings back yet or if its even on the horizon.

    Is it normal to use acoustic strings on a hollow body?

    Just got my friends hollow body hes been having some noise issues through the amp. Noticed the strings are yellow (phosphor bronze?) and I was wondering if that was common or not out of the ordinary on a hollow body electric.

    How would you guys recommend routing screw holes?

    So I got a Q-tuner for my pendulum a little while back knowing the mounting holes are in the corners where the active that was in there was in the center. SO it needs new screw holes, which I'm debating doing myself. I just haven't figured out a way to do the measurements right for the holes...

    Elixirs becoming less rust resistant?

    So I have horrible acid sweat and am pretty much forced to use coated strings if I don't want to change strings every few hours / day. I never so much as had this problem at all with elixirs, I could leave them on there for 6 months and the worst they would get is a little dull sounding. My...

    Individual string bridges / saddles

    So I have my pendulum and I'm thinking of replacing the saddles with some graph tech string savers for no good reason.

    How to figure out what lvl I'm at and what I *should* be learning?
