Hey there Been haveing something weird going on here latly. It started about a month and 1/2, I was ober at my brothers house and his 4th string breaks on his guitar. Then later that day my 4th string breaks on my Yamaha guitar, I buy new "Ball" brand and also buy a brand new Kona guitar (which it had factory stings). So I re-string the Yamaha and acually put it back in the case and played the Kona then last week... while we had a visiting preacher guess what the 4th string breaks! So no problem I break out the Yamaha and play it the remainder of the services and then last Wednesday while playing "*BING*"! 4th sting agian. So back to the Kona...I had gotten some "Gibson" guitar srtings re-strung it and played it today.. Sounded great and then tonight... the 4th string broke agian. QUESION.... Does anyone have any idea what might be going on? In all the 35 years of playing guitars I have never had this happen. Sure... the bottom strings have broken ocasionally...but this is crazy! This is the different brands of guitars (one being my brother's. Also Different brands of strings... Gibson (brand new) on guitar 4 days, Ball(brand new) on guitar for about a month, but only played approx. 4 hours during the 2 day service and practice. The other guitar strings were factory strings and were color coded so who knows?
