#2
are you putting the string in properly, and tightening it properly with the Allen Keys?

make sure you're not over tightening the locking mechanisim

look at it close and make sure its not coming in at a sharp angle as you lock it down as well

it`s one of 3 things

there`s a sharp point on the saddle
there`s a sharp point at the nut
YOU ( the way you attack the string.........i`ve not broken a string in years)

what do u mean by "nut"?
#6
The locking mechanisim at the headstock where you clamp the strings down

if its breaking at the saddle though theres probably a burr on it or you're overtightening

the nut is the piece at the very top of the neck that your strings sit on before the tuning pegs, ya know that thing at the top of the very first fret.
