i haven't even been playing guitar for a whole year yet, and i've been told repeatedly that you should regularly change strings every 3-4 months for optimal performance...

mine are probably due for a changing but i'm waiting for one of them to break...!

old strings don't sound as lively as they should...though some may prefer the more dead sound they have...
@gx
strings do need to be changed 3-4 months(or about that) to be at max performance(IE the grime and such really doesn't help them out, rust hurts, and if you can get it string spray cleaner/wax is a definite life lengthen)

hell i have to change the Tele, Godin(Elecs) Martin and Gibson(ACs) damn near weekly. I've been teaching, and recording mainly with the Tele, so she needs a re-stringin' weekly, at least, and "Baby" (my ancient Martin" has to go to the Guitar Hospital (a Luther ,i know lol)cause her headstock has a hairline fracture(Pray for her please...no i mean it) so i have had to delicately re-string here weekly as well... but
when "all is right"
I can 'rotate the guitars' enough to get away with 1 pack a week PERIOD, next week the next guitar in rotation.

@cherokee_babe1988, thats why they made fun; 2 years is a LoooooNG time to have one set of strings and , generally, means you've not been playing them much.
B U T
i have run into some kids who "didn't know" you need to change strings regularly, and still had these crusty, rusty old Tetanus-gardens on their Gits, so don't feel yer the only one, lol
BUT CHANGE THOSE STRINGS ;~)

RAWK!

I clean them.
The only real wear is at the bridge.
Just use a soft cloth, and right as you finish.
And use a seprate guitar for Shows/gigs.

Btw, carry a tuner and spare strings for the most used guitar. Then its not a hassle!

Buy strings in bulk. I usually buy a 6 pack. Lasts me usually about 2 months worth... so I only have to make the trip a few times a year. Really saves on time and hassle :)

I replace my strings every three or four weeks. But even then it's not too expensive. At six bucks a pack im not complaining. Its cheaper than my smoking and drinking habits
