Exclamation HELP! The Edge Pro On my new RG2550e has broken 4 high E strings!!

Hey, i got a beautiful RG2550 for Xmas but whenever i put the high e string up to full tension it breaks. The factory d'addario .009 broke at the nut when i was stretching it in. I bought another d'addario 9, same again but at the machine head. Then i bought another 9 and that broken when i plucked it gently after locking the nut. Finally, i bought d'addario .010's and set it up but the high e string broke at the machine head when i did a slight bend. All other strings are fine and im almost in tears because i havent been able to play it since it was delivered a week ago. Any ideas why i need all the help i can get !
Thanks Elliot,

Thanks Elliot,
Go to ibanezrules.com (banner above) and read the tech section about the Edge pro trem and how to set it up probably.

Regards

André

That is wierd and very unfortunate and I feel bad for you. That would be terribly frustrating.


Is it breaking at the same place EVERY time ? Do you use a tuner to tune it ? And what tuning are you using ? Standard ? E A D G B E I ask because if you're guessing or tuning by ear maybe you're tuning it too high maybe ? The added tension would make you break strings easier, especially if they are breaking at different points.
