    well, 3 months ago i purchased a black silvertone electric bass guitar, uhh, my E string has uncoiled at the bottom where the pickups are, or bridge or w/e for the past few months, twice now ( im not too firmiliar with guitars ) anyway, why is this happening? are there any alternatives iether than resringing the bass? its pissing me off. lol

  2. Well if the string is uncoiling at the bridge where the string touches the metal, it's probably a sign of cheap or defective strings. I would recommend changing the strings, and while you have the strings off, check the bridge and make sure nothing on the bridge is causing the problem.

    It's most likely the strings.
