Change Guitar String
Change Guitar String
I have a steel string guitar and the strings are starting to smell should I change it?

Okay so I have a steel string acoustic guitar.
Lately I've noticed the strings are starting to have that metal, penny-coin smell.
Is that normal!
Or should I change the strings?

You could just clean them... it's probably dead skin that's fallen off your fingers from callouses. My boyfriend plays guitar and I know he's sometimes complaining about how disgusting it is to see his dead skin on his strings and beneath them on the neck and such.

Whether you are ringing out Opeth-style jazzy chords or playing palm-muted death chugs, even with the amp set to "kill" these EMG 707X pickups will articulate every note harmonically and squeal whatever you ask of them. Used equally in bridge and neck positions, these replacement EMG pickups will forever change how you hear and play your 7-string guitar.The X-Series of EMG pickups provide increased headroom, giving the voicing an organic and open tone while still maintaining the clarity and response that EMGs are renowned for. The EMG 707Xs are best described as bridging the gap between passive and active tone.The EMG 707X guitar pickup package includes: EMG's exclusive Solderless Install System, a split shaft volume/tone control set, an output jack, a battery clip set, plus screws and springs.Active 7-string humbuckerAlnico V magnetsWide aperture coils

Dean Edge Pro5 5-String Bass Guitar Transparent Black 886830834141


$441.32


Quilted maple with a deep, transparent finish, besides being beautiful, always lends a sense of mystery to an instrument. The blending of nature's creativity with that of a luthier who obviously loves the craft never grows tiresome. So it is with Dean's Edge Pro5 5-string Electric Bass. An extra long upper cutaway horn contributes to the look of partnership with nature's asymmetrical beauty, and the gold hardware, dark pickups and gold control knobs finish the look nicely. Top if all off with the Dean Bass Clef inlay at the 12th fret. Beyond the great looks, the maple and walnut neck-thru construction provides your instrument with great strength and warm, dark, full tone. The 3-band active EQ combined with two soapbar pickups means you'll never be at a loss for ways to tweak your sound to find just the right fit for each style you play. The Edge Pro5 bass has 24 frets on a medium sized C shape neck that will let you perform smooth running lines with ease, plus allow you to become a little adventurous and try some chording if it strikes your fancy. A convenient flip-open 9V compartment hides around back in case you need to make a quick battery change in the middle of a set.Neck-thru construction 5 strings Dean 3D active preamp Dean Bass Clef inlay Gold hardware Grover tuners Monolithic bridge system Maple and walnut neck Quilt maple top Basswood body Rosewood fFingerboard 24 frets 2 Dean Soapbar Pickups
