I always snap my G string when Im playing guitar. So you have to get laughed at in the shop when you say; "can I have a G string please!"

Snapped high E several times and low E (thick one) once.

Don't have a tremolo so my E string gets raped with intense bends to satisfy those sound needs and i tremolo pick everything to near death.

**** buying new strings all the time, what am i made of money?

I've broken each string at least once, but I find that my thin is the one that is most commonly broken. After that, probably G or D break the most. I find my B string to be highly efficient...I think I've only ever broken one.
#27
I haven't broken a string in about a year and a half....That's tempting fate a little....Last time is was the high E string.
