Now i never snap strings bassically,i've only snapped one on my Accoustic and i've had it for a while ,and that was becuase i sucked at tuning. since i've got a Electric i've snapped two strings (both high E string) in just as many weeks while playing. i know it's not becuase of the tuning because i tune it every day.

So whats going on.

you may need to get a tech to file down your string saddles, they might be sharp. i had the same problem and that fixed it
Now officially has too much gear to list

PM me if you want to know about my recording setup

Don't cut the string after you put it on.

Seriously, it does wonders...

EDIT: As in don't cut the little remainder off of the top with wirecutters.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE

Its most likely to be a sharp edge in the saddle. Just take it to a guitar tech/shop or file it down yourself.

Get better and/or thicker strings. Don't strum too hard, all that needs to touch the string is the very tip of the pick.

And if it makes you feel better.. my friend breaks a string about two or three times a week. One day I witnessed him break THREE strings in the span of 6 hours because of overbending. He broke the D string, B string, AND the ****ing low E string.....
