I've had a little Ashbory bass for about 14 months. In that time the G string has broken 3 times. None of the other strings have ever broken. Hard playing isn't the cause - the actual player is my 10-year old daughter, who weighs around 80 pounds. It doesn't break while playing - we open the case, and there it is, in pieces. Does anyone else have this problem?
By the way, if you have a small kid who wants to learn bass, the Ashbory is the way to go - this bass requires virtually no hand strength and the player's arms can be very short. My daughter can really concentrate on playing, no need for toughening her finger pads, developing arm strength, etc.
