comment Changing the strings: one by one, or by taking all strings off at one time?
It's conceivable that a problem might arise if you simply cut the strings off without detuning. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow ...

comment How to stop distortion from making minor chords muddy?
Tuning can also play a role, especially if you're trying to tune by ear. If you tune all the fourths to perfect, all the error accumulates in the G-B interval, which can give you a nice G chord because the third is very mild; but the Em sounds like hell.

comment Do distortion pedals work well with tube amps? Or should I use a tube screamer?
+1 Very cool! I never thought of putting volume there (it would seem there's enough volume controls in that part of the chain already).

comment How often is it recommended to change bass strings?
Welcome to the Site! Don't get me wrong! I love Thomastik Jazz Flats to death (I get about 5-6 years out of a set of George Benson's). But, as a "late answer", we're looking for a little more substance. ... I'm certain that facts will bear out your claim. :)

comment How often is it recommended to change bass strings?
Is there any trace of the "fret marks on the high G" that OP was concerned about? About how many hours of playing (rough hrs/day is sufficient) does this represent? Would you expect the same results from Thomastik's roundwounds (OP uses rounds)?

comment How to make Electric guitar sound like a saxophone
More technique ideas (unfortunately not what was wanted): fingerstyle with heavy use of the apoyando stroke; coordinate string changes with the size of the horn's register (ie, use a long position: always use fret 5 instead of an open string).
