yo, i got an shecter omen6 with all the stock strings on it, ive never thought until recently to put a whole set of new strings on it. anyways, no matter what kinda string i put on my 5th (A) string keeps breaking, its happened about 3 times in a 6 mo. period. not really a big deal, but im just wondering why it is only this string and not any of the other ones? could it be the type, or just the wear it gets on it, although it gets about the same amt. as the others around it.
Where does it break? If it breaks near the bridge, it could be the bridge itself. Where the string sits can sometimes get jagged and cause strings to break. Take a small file to it and smooth it out.
As mentioned above it could be the bridge but it could also be the music you play. When i play fast agressive stuff the string that takes the most punishment always breaks first. Like when my band was playing Give it away I always broke the G string.
yep, there seems like there is a burr somewhere
