I'm leading worship on a weekly basis on my L201 and appear to be breaking an average of one string a week. I restring the axe with brand new D'addario EJ16 (light) strings each week but for some reason am suddenly breaking too many strings.
This increase started sometime after christmas, and has been gathering momentum ever since... what is going wrong?
I've been playing for about 10 years, and had broken very few strings until now
People have suggested that i move up from light to medium -would this help? Would it damage the guitar at all to do this?
The string breaks over the saddle - it's always a A or D string, which makes me wonder if the saddle is getting sharp and wearing through the strings.
Please please help me!!!
