This always happens to my wound strings at the bridge and it's costing me a fortune! Does anyone know what I can do to prevent it? If it helps, my guitar is a Yamaha Pacifica, I do a lot of aggressive down picking, and I down tune frequently.

Thanks in advance
Chris.

I would suggest buying a different guitar

is your bridge really sharp, like is it cutting the wire when you change tunings and stuff
Fender American Standard Telecaster
Martin DC-16RE Premium

Fender Snakeskin Champ 12

My suggestion (albeit not the best) is either, a thicker guage
Or a separate guitar for your down tunings? Which may be a hassle *shrug*

My bridge is kinda rusty for the E and A strings. I'm getting it checked out in the music shop next time in town.

Thanks!

The rust is probably shredding your strings, considering how they keep breaking right at the bridge. Get it checked, you don't need a new guitar.

yea the bridge doesnt sound too good, try new saddles
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Sharp saddles will do this. You just need to smooth where the string goes thru. If its a TOM bridge with stop piece the wrap over the top of the stopbar will help alot to.
