How aggressive are you guys, if you are at all? Last week I broke the B string on my bass, and a few months ago I broke the E string on my 4 stringer. I also broke the top 2 strings on both of my guitars from bending the strings too far (guess you really CAN'T bend 3 steps), and I broke 4 guitar strings at once by going too heavy on the whammy bar (doh got carried away..I blame the wah and flanger). And 2 days ago I broke my wah peddle, turned it into a fuzz box somehow. Apparently it can't handle a 60º room at night (got an air conditioner), guess the condensation in the morning (when I turn it off) screwed up the wiring. So what bad luck have you guys had?
