Hi thankyou :)

i did have a set of 10s as it goes :)

well i always tend to break the e string on any guitar,

only had the dot for two weeks, which i love :)

we were just rehearsing and i was in the middle of a very repetitive yet hypnotic song had a bit of a beat to it and the top e just went.

i think its just i was strumming too hard?

Most common causes of constant and consistant string breakage could be a burred spot on the string saddle,

burred spot on tunner, and least often burred spot on fret.

That's why I was wondering if it was breaking at same spot each time.

If it is one of those, sometimes a very, very, very light filing can take care of it.


Could also be binding in the nut slot. Does it tune smoothly?


And yes....it could be your pick.
