    I'm switching to dental floss and fishing line.

    No, because I never started. I collect used discarded string from my local luthier and use those.

    I have a guitar that had 20+ years old strings on it. Still works. When I have a moment I will change them and see how much of a change it will make. :)

    Where is this string you talk of? I looked all over and can’t find any.

    No need to change strings on home decorations, lately it feels like that's all they are seeing as the spend more time on the stands then in my hands at this point in time.
