    I am stringing up my jazz with LaBella super steps... last time i used these (i buy the triple back thing), the G broke... while stringing...


    Is there anything i need to be careful about with these?

    Only thing I can say is don't break them. :)

    I've never had a problem. Maybe you just got an old/bad string.

    Or you might have a bur on the bridge piece or the tuner. Check that and file smooth.
