Hey Les I got an interesting E=mail the other day telling a little bit of the history of WD40 and some of it's uses. One of the things mentioned was cleanig of guitar strings. Now I never even thought of cleaning guitar strings. Can you enlighten me on this subject?

Nope, sorry I can't enlighten you on the subject. I know that there are people who clean their strings but they're mostly banjo players so what can you expect. ";^)
I can't think of the name of what they use but it is kind of oily and does even smell a bit like WD-40, now that you mention it. I tried some on mine once. Didn't care for the feel of it.
When strings need "cleaning", I change them. They don't cost that much. Sometimes in the summer, a set of strings won't last a week.
OOooo, I just remembered what the stuff is called (I think). "Fast Fret". Might look that up and compare ingredients w/ WD-40. Probly the same stuff.

hey les. Being a banjo picker as well as a guitar picker, I agree with you whole heartedly. If your strings need cleaning, they need replacing.
