I'm sure there are a lot of these threads, so feel free to point me in the direction of a broken string faq if I missed one. Anyway, I've just replaced the stock strings on my SX Ursa 3 with D'Addario regular light gauge strings (EXL170). G string tuned fine... but the D string snapped while it was still very flat. I was following these instructions to the letter, and even after going back over them, I don't think I missed anything. The other strings all went on fine, and I reinstalled the stock D string without incident as well. Here are some shots of the final setup, perhaps someone can point out what I'm doing wrong? I double checked when the string broke, there was no overlapping winds, and it was winding the correct direction on the post. I already noticed the E and A strings were cut a bit short, I'll keep an eye out for that next time, but I'm hoping it won't be an issue.
