I'm sure you all have had the "spontaneously snapping G string" going on (please, never mind the obvious jokes ). I was wondering if anyone had tried using a D for a G. If so, how did it work out? I'm guessing it wouldn't snap as much. The nut would have to be altered somehow, I suppose. If not, does anyone have any suggestions for avoiding chronic G breakage? That could get real annoying real fast.
