For a present I got some acoustic strings for my guitar. But I only have an electric guitar. Would I be able to use them on my electric all the same? If I can is there any drastic changes between strings, Besides the obvious things?
Thanks

You could, but the string-to-string balance would be very poor. This is because the windings on electric strings are ferromagnetic to interact strongly with the pickups, where as those on acoustic strings are not. The most obvious difference would be between the plain 2nd and the wound 3rd.
