"I used the searchbar"

Which strings breaks the most? In my case the "G" string or the 3rd string
#2
I've broken each string once, actually, so I won't vote. :P

ACTUALLY scratch that, I've broken my b and high e's twice, but the e was while restringing, so I'll vote b. :P
I'm Joel. I play guitar. I am a student. I look at the cost of tuition, not in a dollar value, but in the guitars I'm sacrificing now, to be able to buy later.

for me, the B and high E like to break on me.

if you're constantly breaking strings 3-6 then you need to file something down... you have a barb or something in the saddle/nut

but for me, i always break my high E, almost on a weekly basis.. i'm saving up for a graph-tech saddle on my LP.

i had one really horrible set of strings, just a fluke set of DR's, i broke every string in the pack within a week except 5th string.

This would have been more interesting if you had posted brands of strings instead of string numbers. The 1st string will break the most often because it's the thinnest.
Please don't assume I care enough about your guitar rig, your general thoughts on life, the funny things people have said about you, or anything else not related to the topic at hand to have the view signatures option turned on. I don't.
#13
I've snapped them all but the b and high e seem to go 1st after few months, worst one yet was breaking the e on my bass, it must have been just ready to go though cos i barely touched it when it went.

that shouldnt make a difference, lol. i tune from standard to drop C all the time and the other string ive broken doing that is my high e. Also when your tuning down unless you did a terrible job stringing your guitar it shouldnt break at all. that doesnt make any sense,

I've broken more low E strings ferociously chugging away rather than the high e, which seems weird.

My D (4th) string breaks the most, but my G (3rd) string is the one that goes out of tune the easiest.

I tried it out in store.

Great neck, nice n light, good tuning stability. Overall a good guitar. I didn't but it cause I generally only buy guitars over a grand now.
