Well thats another night ruined.

I play a Gibson Les Paul classic with super low action, Elixir Nanoweb something something - .009 - .042.

3rd time a tone and a half bend has snapped my high e string. Am i doing something wrong? The string wasnt at all rusted and has been on since the 23rd of January.

If it helps i did the tone and a half bend in the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son solo (Iron Maiden).

I use 0.09s on my Strat, but it has never snapped during a bend, even when I bent it and pulled on the whammy at the same time, until it was about 4 semitones up...

like said. depends on where the string breaks.

for example, if it broke on the saddle, then, there might be a sharp spot on the saddle.
