I'm going to test out these new strings from Fender with the cool colored ball ends :

I've done some beta testing for apps, software, musical things and it's kinda cool
to work out the bugs and get some of the free perks as a reward.

I use Fender strings all the time. I have sets here with colour ball ends that I bought back in 2011 so I don't know what exactly they're testing. Mike maybe you can enlighten us.

Yes, Fender strings started having coloured ball ends when they stopped making their own strings and started getting D'Addario to make them for them. That was when I stopped buying Fender strings having previously been a full time Fender 150 user. Perhaps there is a new development?

Just think of how awesome a guitar player you could have been by now if you had only spent the last 10 years practicing instead of obsessing over pickups and roasted maple necks.

That's cool, Mike. I wish I had heard about it before it ended. Have fun.

Why would they exclude people who live in Rhode Island?

Maybe it's Rhode Island’s relative humidity relative to the string tone. :P

I've wondered that myself, and I live there. Maybe it's some sort of state law around here dealing with contests, and things like that.

That’s probably it, Paul. Don’t feel bad though. Happens to us all the time here in Canada. I think it has something to do with our toques. :lol:

Yeah, I think you might be on to something there. :P Speaking of which, we're getting into toque season here pretty soon.
