My guitar is a standard JP6. I'm really confused as to what I did to make this happen?

The first time I had strung every string up and was simply tuning, then when I got to tuning the high E it just broke at the end of it (where the ball tip thing is). I then got another E string out from another pack of D'addarios I have and the same thing happened right after I locked it in and began winding it up.

Is there something wrong with the guitar or am I an idiot? I just want to know what I'm doing wrong before I waste another string. Really bummed about this...

Thanks in advance, guys.

There may be a burr in the bridge, maybe?
Might want to get it set up.

Tone is in the fingers.

What you really need is a new amp.

I have been hearing about MG amps lately. I have heard good about them, but only a few times have they been talked about here.

check the bridge and nut for and dents or burrs . Make sure the pickups are not too high up and close to the strings.
Are you tuning to E but up a couple of octaves? This would make the string too taut and could cause it to snap.
If you have never checked out the Wood Brothers. Do yourself a favor and look them up. Best. Band. Ever.

Take it to the shop. If they only need to do a quick file job, they may not even charge you for the work if you get some strings or something.

Stretch the string first always. Also don't wind it up too fast and make sure you leave a good amount of slack before you start winding.
