To stabilize your guitar and strings, Tune your guitar strings to pitch and then let them settle before playing.
After everytime you play your guitar, use a clean soft dry cloth to wipe your strings down. Wiping the strings and fretboard down reduces the wear on your strings, frets and fretboard. Clean strings maintain a quality sound for a longer period of time..
Nuts & Saddles
To avoid string breakage, Lubricate nut slots & saddles using graphite from a pencil point.
Guitar Strings have less tension on a shorter scale guitar.
New String Storage
New unused sets of guitar strings should be kept in a dry place and can be stored almost indefinitely.
Once strings are opened and installed, even if you didn't play your guitar for a long time after a restring, those strings will sound dead. It has to do with the metal oxidizing, Once strings are removed from the package the metal oxidizes and the strings will go dead.
