    Today I broke my G string for the third time within the last 4 months. I don't know what the problem is because I don't play hard and I use a 50 gauge G string. I think it may be my bridge, is there anyway to fix it?

    Check for sharp edges and remove them with a fine file or sandpaper.

    Where exactly is the string breaking?

    The string breaks right where it goes over the bridge saddle. I set the saddle real low and I have checked for sharp edges and found none. I'll see how long these new strings I bought will last.
