i have broken exactly 3 G-strings and 1 E-string in the last 2 weeks alone. I can't take it anymore, my fingers are not that powerful that they snap when i'm playing normal fingerstyle. They are breaking down at the bridge and i had this problem "fixed" (and i use that term lightly, because the guitar shop sucks) andyway they shaved down the saddle on the e string and it seemed fine for a while. but now i'm wondering if i should just be adjusting the height that the bridge is set at. OR if i could shave and smooth out the saddles a little myself. Anyone that could help i would greatly appreciate it. Or if you know of somewhere i can buy seperate bass strings without buying a full 20 dollar set everytime i break one, please tell me, i'm BROKE, I CAN'T AFFORD THIS!!! PS i'm having trouble with a Hohner brand "B Bass" a lightweight P style bass, and the bridge is a hipshot customized bridge if that can help in helping me out.
