I'd try Goo Gone first. It's more gentle and works on most gooey residue.

Received a nice "thank you" email from the OP, Bradshaw Pack. Switching to a wound string was indeed the problem. A plain .020 fixed it.

Yes. Many players, myself included, lower their E strings on RKL (Right Knee moving Left) instead of LKR (Left Knee moving Right).

You would need to flip the guitar over and move some parts around ...

The sweetened temperament in the tuner only works on the open strings and at the 12th fret. When you're at other frets, it "hears" the notes at those frets and compares them with the sweeten ...

Just my opinion, but this amp seems to have the best and warmest sounding reverb I've ever heard and reverb is just about the only effect I use. Well a little E-Bow now and then, but not too much.
