I've been playing shows for about 8 years, and I can honestly say I had never broken a string while on stage. Until last night. We got through sound check fine, and then on about the third note of our first jam, POP goes my G string. It is just so much fun transfering runs up the neck. But, I was a trooper and just minimized my playing for the whole set. Now I see how bad I need an SR5 (just as a back up...YEAH RIGHT).
