    I use to break my strings when they are 4 months old, is it normal ?

  3. There might be a little sharp spot on your bridge where it starts to wear the string down and break it. Or There might be one on the tuner or something. Just look around and make sure there aren't any sharp spots or anything that could screw the strings up. If it isn't that....play a little softer and use the volume knob.

    i probably break one that often. i used to break them LOTS more often until i filed some sharp edges off my bridge. and i play alot softer now so i haven't broken one in a long time.
