I keep breaking D strings on my 6-string ABII...
Anyone know where I can buy some single D strings?
Did you email me on this?
You can buy singles from us. A comparable off the shelf string would be a GHS Super-steel or Ken Smith Stainless. Pretty much any round-wound stainless string .055" gauge should do.
There are two things that I know of that consistently shorten string life.
1. Too much break angle at the saddle. In other words the saddle screws are set too high. The fix for this is to lower the saddle height which may require loosening the truss-rod or shimming the neck to compensate.
We sell tapered full contact neck shims if you need.
2. Your amp needs to be turned up. This sounds silly but if makes a huge difference. The louder your amp, the lighter you play.
