well i failed epically in changing the strings on my electric guitar, and i accidentally broke the low E string(46). what i ended up doing was taking the A string(44) of a spare set of acoustic guitar strings i had lying around and put it on my electric guitar. now on to my question, what will happen if i plug in my guitar to my amp?

UPDATE

tried it out, the string sounds good. its only noticeable when i play on a clean setting, i don't get that nice new string sound on it. that and i seem to be getting a lot more feedback from my amp when i play it on my insane distortion setting. other than that it seems to be good. thanks for the help guys.

As long as the string is metallic, it'll have a magnetic flux and will work, maybe not as well as a propper string but it should work.

I would say the other way around; it could ruin your sound, but nothing will happen to your amp.

c-c-c-combo breaker!

But really, nothing will happen. The absolute WORST that could happen would be your guitar sounding a little thin until you change the strings again. That's all.

Not much, you might have a little less output from the E string, since acoustic strings are not meant for pickups.

Why not ?

you will open the gates of hell and cause the world to be engulfed in darkness..


..but if you play death metal, then that's probably a good thing
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Electro acoustic?

I have accoustic strings on my gibson es 125 and they work just fine.

Compared to steel strings? Well, first of all, brass is not magnetic, and pickups work off of disruption in a magnetic field, but they do have a steel core, so they would work, but would not have the same output as steel strings would.

Electro acoustic can mean anything, all the way from microphone pickup inside the guitar, to bridge saddle pizio pickup, to actual sound hole pole style pickups.
