So in the last few months or so, my strings have been breaking way too often. I usually get a broken string every week or so, either the E or B string. They seem to be breaking at the bridge, which is usually called by some kind of sharp point in the bridge it is rubbing against. I tried to sand it down with a wound string, but no luck. Any ideas?

Try using some fine sand paper, if that don't work then graphtech string saver saddles would probably be your next course of action.

I agree. They're a good investment, anyway.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I'll have to check that out, thanks. They make PRS trem-style saddles?

Umm take strings off, undo the intonation screw all the way take out saddle piece and screw and replace with new parts. Nope should be an hour job at the max.

make sure to take the string tension off, on the string you're working on, first. i know it seems obvious. but some guys don't know that you cant swap things out under full tension.

also, brace the bridge first, in the trem cavity, wedge something in there so the bridge stays level while you work.
