On my electric (squire bullet strat) I noticed that my 3rd string was pretty severely bent at the fourth fret so naturally I ordered new strings. I've had these new strings for about a week and the 1st,2nd, and 3rd strings (Ernie ball super slinkies gauges .009,.011,.016 respectively) are already bent. Is this just a bad luck with the strings or is there something wrong with my guitar ?

sounds like you have a poorly dressed fret which is to high and is bending the strings.

You can see it is bent with the tension still on? That is Weird. Can you post a picture?

Sadly no, The bends are visible just not as extreme yet as the other ones and I don't have a camera. I'm just worried about the speed of which they are getting bent.

As long as it plays it'll be fine. Its not the string and I doubt its your playing. The frets are made in antartica by penguins. Its cheaper that way,

There's no way a string can ever bend under that much tension. Did you mean the strings get torn out around those frets? Best you get a picture
