Re: UV - Strings breaking - help!!
First of all, thx gents for your fine ideas! I appreciate it alot, every idea is useful since i have no ideas of my own anymore about how to fix the situation.
The trem is locked, so it doesnt influence the tension at all. Prior to locking i had a few "exotic" setups with my trem, which were all a complete fail.
I thought of that tbh, the sweat is very agressive on the strings, even to the chrome parts of the trem where the palm muting takes place. But that i cannot do much about i suppose, except wiping and cleaning the thing every time.
The guitar was already at techs, a master of his trade, fixed everything, also fine sanded the saddles. Interestingly right after his job the thing worked was very stable, just recently it went out of normal again.
I dont bend that much tbh, a few solos here and there, but nothing mayor. Well its all the strings from A (0.36) downwards, D string (0.46) never brakes.
Im really very gentle on her, compared with when i play say a strat which can be pounded crazy and still remain stable.
Darn, i will try that. Should work fine on dropped D tunning I suppose.
I will post pics.
Just a small question. I googled a bit and found a few replies saying "dont tighten your strings too much at the saddle point, youll be surprised how little they need"; i must admit i do tight them fully and didnt think of anything else to be honest. Naturally i do understand metal (strings) gets deformed thus probably accelerating the breakage at the same very point every time.
Thx again gents!
