Hmm. It breaks pretty close to my finger, on the bridge side. This is my first experience with a wound g so I figured that it was just something inherent with them.It shouldn't be breaking with bends. Is it breaking nut or bridge end?
The guitar has a one piece wraparound bridge that previous strings have cut little nicks into, my current strings don't quite sit in those nicks. After a bit of internet searching just now I think that might be the problem? If so, a new bridge could sort it out. That would be great.
