Ok.... so I'm going to have the strings replaced at my local Mom & Pop shop. the guy I deal with is great and I'm sure he'll let me watch him.
First -- what's the best thing I can apply to my fret board to clean and condition it?
Second - What are some of the questions I should be asking while he does this?
Third - Which of these strings should I go wtih (I know this is a personal preference, but I need somewhere to start); -- Ernie Ball, D'Addario, Elixer, Dean Markley (Blue Steel)?
