    ...there's really no substitute for fresh strings.
    On the other end of the spectrum, my main axe is a Fender Jazz with Fender 9050L flatwounds. They're going on four years of regular play, and I've seen no reason to change them yet.

    Yeah, if you're going for the "aged flats" sound, the strings should be changed when they can no longer be tuned or intonated. In some cases that can take around a decade or so. They're a different animal. A lot of flats just keep sounding better with age.

    That doesn't describe John Entwhistle. I don't think that describes Steve Harris either.
