When I was in high school, I wore my strings out so badly that I actually wore out the windings on the core. It was an old harmony was crazy high action. We can all imagine how badly that sounded and played...but I was living on my own on student assistance...NO cash
I usually buy the L&M house strings when I don't feel like spending a lot on new strings for beater guitars. They cost about $4 a pack and I'm almost positive they're either GHS or D'addario rebranded strings; they're a dead ringer for the $8 Pack of GHS boomers.
When I was in high school my Mom asked if I had a spare guitar string--she was using a cheese slicer to prepare for guests--and the wire broke.
She said she'd replace it--I gave her a spare high E string--& when she put it on the slicer (One of those ones that look like the old style paper cutters) she left the ball end attached.
It looked cool.
