I have never bought replacement strings and my bottom E string snapped. How would I find out what kind of strings I have to get it replaced?
Thanks

if you've never changed your strings before get a new pack instead of one string. probably 10's, they come stock on most guitars.

You can restring it with any kind, as long as you adjust the intonation afterwards. What style of music do you play? Normally, you should get .010's, what brand is up to you. I prefer D'Addario, but you should try everything out and get a feel for what you want.

I play mostly classic rock, rock, and some metal. Bands like Ac/Dc, Led Zepplin, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Rush. Bands like that. So would all new 10's work fine?
Thanks

If tens are standard why have i always used 9's?

Anyway replace all the strings providing it hasn't snapped at the bridge or the nut the likely hood is that the strings are well worn therefore replacing them all is a good idea. However if the precursory explanations are true there could be an imperfection with the pieces of hardware in question. They are not big problems and can be rectified with a pencil or a small file.

My advice. Buy a pack of .10s by a couple different brands and find which ones you like, swapping them every week or so until then. I think DR last the longest, while Ernie Ball have a nice but mellow cut to their tone. Not a huge fan of d'Addarios unless it's their jazz strings, but they seem to be popular here.

Wow, sexual guitar string talk, my fav! hahaha. I prefer 9's because there a tad thinner and nice and flexible, they don't exactly break very easily, so 9's or 10's is definitely a personal preference.
