Hey, Just before my band's first gig, I bought a new set of strings. I got some Fender stainless steel 'standard' wound strings, in .100, .080, .060 and .040 gauges. It's hard to find words to express how much I love(d) these strings, right up until the exact week after I'd bought them when the outer wound part of the string sheared from the core of the G-string. I wasn't happy. Basically, I want to get these strings again, but has anyone else found they snap quickly? Or d'you reckon it was just a duff string? We did play a gig, but still... I slapped 'em on 2 days 'fore gig, played them in, then played twice after the gig. I'd love to get them again, but just wanted to check if anyone here had snapped them quickly too? Thanks very much for any help, Mark.
