Alloy Strings

Why do my friends guitar strings rust so easily?

We've been wondering why his guitar strings rust so easily. We both buy EB Regular Slinky strings, neither of us use string cleaners, my strings stay perfect for months and months but his strings rust after a week.
And they rust REALLY bad too!

I have a similar problem, and as a chemist I can say it is because I have very acidic sweat. Give him a piece of blue litmus paper to hold, bet it turns red!

My solution is to use Gibson special alloy strings - the high nickel content stops them rusting except for the top 2, you have to keep changing those.

After playing, wipe the strings with a duster, under then over, they will last longer.
