When they start annoying me. I'm horrible at keeping new strings on a guitar.

I should change monthly but I usually change at 2-3 months.

Around 3 times a year.I usually use the lightest strings but am going to change to something heavier to see how it effects the tone.

About every 2-3 weeks.

I teach and play on a few of my main guitars, so the strings get worn pretty quick.

When I use to play shows, before every performance. Now I just change them when they get too worn down. Every few months.

I use Elixir coated strings on my acoustic and so only change them every 2-3 months. And I play most everyday. On my electrics, hardly ever change them. But I don't play me electrics very often. Maybe once every couple of weeks.

Correct baller answer: My tech changes them after each show.

every 2-3 months. wipe them down with rubbing alchohol or lighter fluid after playing and they'll last awhile.

Never understood this. You should give yourself at least 3-4 days after changing strings before performing or youre going to be retuning after every single song

I have 3 acoustics (2 6-strings and a 12-string); I change strings every 4-6 weeks. I play each guitar at least 30 minutes per day. I've been using D'Addario strings for the most part and one thing I've noticed is, when the strings start to sound dull you really notice it. I don't know if this is a good or bad thing, but at least you know when it's time for a new set.

Not really, I always stretch my strings after I tune then tune them again. Never had issues
