Well when I built the fr00tcaster a couple of months ago I had put some pink strings on it initially, but it needed some additional setup work and I didn't have another set of pinkies. So today I had the day off so I decided to fr00t this bitch back up. This time these are the DR neons which are even brighter than the last ones I had on it. Pics





My assistant techs, Charlie and Dakota

...and do they feel sticky? I had black ones when they first came out many years ago, and they were sticky and the coating flaked off where you pick all over the guitar.

I like the guitar and the dogs.

How long does the finish on those strings last?
On my guitar, they lasted till I got sick of them and went back to Elixirs. They were a fair bit duller than the Elixirs I was used to.

On my Rickenbacker, they've only started to flake after about three months of hard pick and fingerstyle playing, a couple hours each week.

I haven't used the strings long enough to give any input. They feel and sound good. Hopefully the coating lasts. They don't feel sticky at all.

The dogs do look kind of ashamed. LOL
