Hay guys,

I was wondering if Acoustic Guitar Strings would work on my electro acoustic guitar, would the pick-up still work or are the electro acoustic strings made differently so that they do work with a pick-up?

If so what strings shall i get steel or phozser bronze and any good makes?

I've been told that the 'elixir phozser bronze' are good strings.

Thanks in advance

I don't think they will. your pickups are magnets that pickups the vibrations form the strings. I don't the acoustic strings have enought iron in them to pick up properly.

no, ive strung acoustic strings on an electric, the tone was slighty diminished but it worked. and on an electro acoustic you can put on anything but nylon. unless its a nylon string mic pick up

if it has a magnetic pickup, you must use strings containing a ferrous metal. if it has a microphone pickup, you can put anything on it but acoustic strings will work better. if it has no pickup, acoustic strings will sound better, but electics will work.
