String Breakage Prob on old Sunburst


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys... Picked up a '77 Sunburst. I REALLY like the guitar (not looking to sell) but I'm having a string breakage problem with it. I can barely get through a set without popping a high E string. It was cute the first few times but it's getting old FAST!!! One gig I broke 2 E's and a B... highly unusual on a fresh set of strings for me.

The break is occurring at the saddle. It doesn't feel sharp but I'll probably try to smooth it/polish it up a bit to see if this helps.

Anybody have a recommended method for this type of procedure?? Or... any other recommendations??
