my first string on my classical guitar just broke so i thought of restringing every string since they're all rusty .
i was just wondering whether its ok to put acoustic strings on a classical .
will the sound or anything be affected in a way ?
Maybe guitars ain't my thing . I'll try the cello .

Steel strings will destroy a classical guitar. DO NOT put them on.

A classical guitar is only meant to handle about 50lbs of string tension. Steel strings produce 150lbs+.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

Have an acoustic guitar? Don't let your guitar dry out! Click here.

the sound might be affected seeing as those strings would probably break the guitar
(at the risk of sounding like a douche you do mean steel strings on a nylon string one right?)

Yup

Your neck will bow, and you won't get even close to tuning it cos after a while your tuners just won't budge (the wound strings might even cause your tuners to go "SNAP!!!" )

It appears as if you are you saying that it already had 6 steel strings on it.
