Right now im using 11-60 GHS Nickel rockersWhat type and gauge of strings are you using now and what type frets are you using as well?
It really couldn't hurt to try a different type of string set since you have only used nickels. That could completely answer your question and at the very least, provide the process of elimination to help rectify your problem.I don't think I've tried non nickel on thus guitar yet
do you think that could be the problem
Well I'm for sure bending alot no metal riffing thoughlooks like you're putting a lot of pressure on your string bends, you bend strings a lot, and you're probably doing heavy riffing "metal" style!!! you might find that getting a better feel for a lighter gauge string set(especially on the heavier gauges... E,A,D)... OR, it could be your body chemistry reacting to the string/fret material itself...
Certain metals or bi-metals can react with your bodies PH level and cause string discoloration and even can kill the dynamics of the string. This happens to me with some models of strings. That's what tin was referring to. Never saw that cause a pre- played, new installation bend as in the picture, though...Although I did see discoloration on the first picture.Well I'm for sure bending alot no metal rigging though
what's this body chemistry all about... I do happen to be allergic to some kinda metal
