I am currently playing about 2 - 3 hours a day, Monday to Friday. Since returning the Rocktile I have been playing one of my Shine guitars. Don't like it as much as the "Vee".
This afternoon I had a shot on my American Strat, using my Zoom G3X, and, though it has the newest string in my stable (only 3 years old), it has probably been played the most. I noticed the G was getting a bit tarnished in places, so I replaced the strings. Used a set of Elixir Nanoweb 9's. Not the easiest of jobs when you have a cat trying to impale itself on the string ends, during the entire process.
Now all I have to do is keep up the enthusiasm and make it all worth while. Especially as my brother gave me a very expensive leather strap for my 70th, which I put on the Strat.
