    Well, it's one of those things that requires time, which so far my Dad hasn't had much of. We need to tear the basement apart and redo it, and he's going to build a new string jig. Hopefully things will start falling into place in the near future.

    Fraying is not necessarily a sign of wear. I've had sets of strings fuzz and last a long time. Worst case was a set of Dakotas. Looked like crap, fuzz, tiny knots, so after 15,000 shots I changed them

    I wish it was a lot faster. Time is not been on my side. With work being heavy, and cars needing repair. I have been out straight. I did finally get a list of all I need to build my string jig. Hopefully I will get that built. But thats life!
