...I Broke A String on a Floyd Rose...

Current mood: surprised

   So yesterday I sat down with my guitar and plugged it in. I started playing, just like any other day, and I wasn't even rocking out. I was just strumming along and out of nowhere my little E string makes this CRACK noise and then flings itself into the side of my wrist... and it hurt like crap! :eek: And scared me a little, haha.
   I guess it was bound to happen sometime because I hadn't changed my strings in 9 months. They were still in good condition though, I always clean them off after I play. Turns out that the broke string was only half the problem...
   I took the back plate off the Jackson to see if everything was still ok and I found out that the springs in the bridge had all popped off. Now I have to buy new strings, put them on, AND attempt to fix the bridge.  And anybody with a Floyd Rose knows how long that can take sometimes with all the adjusting and screwing and locking and tuning. I can't really say I'm looking forward to it.
  Wish me luck...
