I have a Gibson Vintage Mahogany, and it is awesome...well, except for one thing. Lately, I have been breaking strings very often, and the A string actually unwinds near the bridge. The first time it happened was after i broke a string, so I thought the tension change caused by the broken string caused it to unwind, but yesterday it happened again. I was play some Mettalica, and suddenly it unwound. Why is this happening?
P.S. When I shake the guitar there is a rattling sound near the head.

Sounds to me like a tuner is off a little. The breakage could be due to a sharp string saddle, tight nut or all of the above. the best thing to do is take it to a reputable dealer. If it's a Gibson it will have a warranty.
