: wuz up. I need your help yet agian. my D and G strings keep breaking at the bridge and it doesnt matter what type of strings i buy. is it because i play slap bass or is the bridge in the wrong place? if you can help please do thanx burmeiser

Both guys who posted are right: if the strings keep breaking at the same spot, it might be a problem with the bridge saddles. Maybe they have some kind of very sharp angle that causes the strings to weaken and, eventually, break. Time to go to the repairman , I guess, but I don't think he could charge you too much money for just filing the saddles a little.
Hope this helped,

El Pájaro.
