There shouldn't be any problem using electric strings on an acoustic-electric, unless it's a classical guitar (made for nylon strings) which can be amplified. While classical acoustic-electrics do exist, they are a tiny minority of acoustic-electrics, and if yours has any metal strings on it it's almost certainly not a classical.

Happy playing!

I had a Freshman Dreadnought in my guitar shop as a PX. It has electric guitar strings on and sounder pretty tinny and not good so I wouldnt recommend it. It wont do any harm though just kill the bass you would expect from your acoustic.


GTR Music for great electric and acoustic guitars. Good old fashioned service and plenty of stock too.
