Ok, my guitar is really pissing me off!

I usually play in drop C but sometimes I go to standard tuning. For some reason my damn g-string keeps breaking! It breaks right at the post and I know for sure I'm not going too high because I go extremely slow with that string. I felt the post and there's no sharp edges or anything.
It's just pissing me off cause this is the 4th time this has happened in like 3 months! Everytime this happens I have to order a whole set and wait a week or two because none of the shops carry the strings I use!

I use heavy Elixirs, so maybe it's time to try a new brand??

try gettin 600 grid sand paper and just give the saddle a lil sand.. if it still breaks easyly then concider getting new saddles or try another brand to see what the results are

I wouldnt consider it too surprising, if your tuning up its probs cause the string cant take the strain of going a whole tone back to G ,,, G strings are always an odd one, goes outa tune first, buzzes first, breaks first its just cursed dude

I don't know if this would prevent any from breaking, but this is how I string my guitars...
