I've just been looking at some pictures of a Gibson Chet Atkins SST that recently sold and it's clearly using acoustic strings.

Now, I have Gibson electric strings on my GCASST but it's got me thinking...

On a solid body acoustic, what strings are you suposed to use?


f your guitar doesn't have magnetic pickups it's fine to use acoustic strings but you can use electric if you want... In my experience electric strings lose tone faster and that's fine on electric coz you have your amp and pickups pushing your tone whereas acoustic strings give you better acoustic tone but will not be picked up by a magnetic pickup (everything except mic and piezo)

when in doubt, adjust the truss rod.
