    I have to put a new one on every two weeks or so.

    Any suggestions?

    Try wearing briefs....they are far more sturdy.

    Seriously...check the bridge and nut that the angles on the strings arn't too severe (is it a string through body bridge?) and otherwise, try and play a little more gently! :D

    Everytime I mention this to somebody they give me a remark such as this one.

  5. This topic should probably be in the "off topic" section. Huh huh huh huh...

    Sorry, I couldn't help it.

    To answer your question seriously, you may want to have the saddles on your bridge smoothed. Also, make sure you stretch out the strings first before putting them on.
