Hey guys. I was just playing away on my guitar just now and my a-string, well, I want to say snapped, but it didn't really snap. It got stretched to the point where I could see the smaller string that make up the guitar string. It happened instantly so I suppose it snapped, but not quite.

Anyways, this happened to me before my last string change (which couldn't have been more then a few weeks ago), and now it's just happened again. I bought a pack of Ernie Ball strings or something like that. It wasn't a cheap no-name brand.

Could this be the bridge or something? That's where the stretch was now and that's where it was the last time it happened.

I've got a PRS SE Singlecut.

You've got a tune-o-matic and a bridgepiece, right?

There's a chance the bridge's saddles are sharp and wearing at the strings.

Edit: Nevermind, Google is your friend. Do you have the hardtail or trem model?

Hmm...are the edges of the bridge sharp then? It may also have to do with where you're picking or your palm muting - I break a lot of strings that way on a lot of my guitars simply because I sweat a lot onstage, so whenever I palm mute, the strings get doused around the saddles, which, combined with when I pick near the bridge to get a crisper sound, eats through it and corrodes it in a way that ends like that.
