Used guitar strings - 1 set (yeah I know, why would anyone want that?)
Then came a day when a set of strings was tossed in the trash by same person who nearly burned what became my first guitar. My mother, I think, had the surprising foresight to ask, "Can my son have those?" And that was my first set of strings -- with probably 100 hours of music already in them, going onto a guitar which was nearly burned alive in front of my very eyes, and tuned on the cracked tuning pegs with a lot of wincing and a pair of rusty needle-nose pliers.
I'm still pretty broke, but now I can afford a new set of guitar strings once in awhile.
I just took a set of strings off my acoustic guitar, so I'm offering them up for anyone who can use them for anything.
An old bandmate of mine used to use a guitar string as a tattoo needle when he was in prison. These may be a little too old and worn for that, but far be it from me to tell you how to use your free strings. I used to collect the string anchors and make jewelry out of them, but it took so many sets of strings to make just one bracelet, and once my friends and coworkers saw them, everyone just had to have one.
If you can use 'em, lemme' know and I'll save 'em for you. They're seriously really, really old. I just came back from a 26-city tour, and the strings hadn't been changed for a few months even before that. If you're reading this and thinking, "You're the worst musician ever, change your strings more often," I have no defense for my actions. I blame the economy, I blame whatever political group you don't support, I blame Canada (but not really), and I blame the Oxford comma.
