Been playing EB regular slinkys 10\46 all my life but my main guitar now has a maple neck and the strings nickel is staining the wood. I change my strings every 6 days but my fingers and fretboard get very nickely in just hours and continue to do so requiring cleaning of fretboard and fingers evey 2 hours or less. I wash my hands several times over a few hours and the nickel turns my fingers black and has made my ebany board on a different guitar so filthy I can not possibly keep it clean. Iv used these strings almost 30 years and have not had this problem until a few years ago. Is there any suggestion on differnt strings. I love the feel of these but the are so dirty. If you have any suggestions could you explain the difference in playing feel and if the nickel mess is any better. Love EB im not trying to put down anything so please dont veiw this as a hater thread.
