What kind of crazed, Leon-esque sorcerous alchemy is this!
This pic kind of sucks, but that's a 2 week old set of Elixirs, and the top strings are completely fucking rusted to hell! The stand next to it has my humidifier on top of it, so the only thing that I can think of is that they just got too much moisture at night. I haven't played the guitar in a few days, and they definitely weren't that blackened () last time I picked it up.
Are these the newer Elixirs with the rust-resistant plain strings?
