Hey all, I just got allergy tests today that verify that I'm VERY allergic to nickel. To the point where switching to stainless steel strings is not enough, and I'm most likely going to have to (sooner or later, but may as well do it sooner) refret my 3 guitars. So I figured I'd pick brains here. Stainless Steel vs. EVO (that's right, right?) Is there really a sound difference? I'd like to think I have a pretty discerning ear but... who knows. If there is one thing I can't stand though, it's shrill highs. And the far bigger question, where should I get it done? Ideally, the closer the better. (I'm in Winnipeg, which is about 7 hours north of Minneapolis for those of you who don't know) But I'm totally willing to mail my guitars or send them down with someone traveling or something to get a really good job done at a reasonable price. I understand that this isn't something to cheap out on, but at the same time, I'm a student, who really didn't want to have to drop hundreds per guitar so that I wouldn't be allergic to them. Any help is appreciated! Thanks! Edit: Worth mentioning that Phoenix area can also be considered local for me as some family of mine owns a house down there that we go to a few times a year, so the guitars could easily be sent with them when they go or taken down by me at the next opportunity.
