I recently broke the high e string on my electric guitar. I was wondering if it is better to replace all strings at the same time or just the one that I broke? Thanks for your replies....

all the strings at the same time

strings go dead after awhile, and if you break a string, it's a pretty good indicator that it's dead

.....If Fender DID buy out Jackson, Im quitting guitar and music. Would hate to see the same model of a jackson, the Jackocaster, sold every year with little or no change.

Thanks for the reply. Any others agree? Any reasoning behind just replacing the broken string?

I would suggest, replacing all the strings "one at a time".

Well if the strings are pretty new (less than half a week) then just get that single string, the tone will be nearly indistinguishable, so the outcome should be inconsequential.

yeh just get the whole set replaced cause then you get a feeling of all new strings rather than 5 crap and 1 good.
