umm you could try it. just put it on and see if it works. if you can get it close to being tuned right then it will be better than no e at all i guess

im guessing no...if it doesnt resonate on ur electric and electric should be lower action?/ why should it resonate on acoustic? try the E then try the B if E sucks....patience is a virtue man :p if u put a g up to an e when its alot lighter gauge...maybe it will snap in your performance....not what u want :p xxxx

i am going to try putting a b string on, which is a .12, and i think light gauge e strings are .12 so i will hope for the best

0.12 is the most common for a medium gauge acoustic e string... so yeah maybe try the b string from an electric set.
#11
I think an Electric E or B would work, I've done it with a G-string before.
#13
I have .10-.47 Elixirs on my acoustic. I was a little suprised when the guy at the guitar shop suggested these. But they play great, and they should. I paid almost 30$ for them.

Try the electric b string.
#14
itll work


For some reason my friend likes to put adaddario electric strings on his acoustic

and it plays alright


If you do that though you should probably replace all the strings with electric and not just the e cause that string will be a wayyyy smaller gauge then the rest of the acoustic strings
#15
I did it on my friends ovation. ****ty sound, not comfortable, but a great substitute to acoustic strings
strat player forever.

not if he uses the B string from the electric set as the high E on his acoustic... the gauge should match perfectly.

chips: you paid 30 bucks for one set of elixirs?! man you need to find a new shop to buy strings! all my local shops have them marked at like 26-28 dollars a set but they have a "sale" where strings are half off... and the sale never ends so yeah basically those strings run about 13 dollars a set.

Well, he said they were the best. And that I wouldn't have to change those in like 6 months or so. Nanoweb coating or something like that keeps them clean
#18
Classical or regular? If it's regular you can do it.

Fender Standard Strat
Fender Deluxe Active Jazz Bass

oh they are definitely really good strings... i've just never had to pay over probably 15 dollars for a set of them
#20
i've done that, it works but it only works with e strings and maybe B strings
there are two kinds of people. those who use the word "pimp" often and those who dont.

i'm one of the latter.
#21
go get one tommarow before/after school. i doubt itll work if you just use an electric string. if you can drive go pick one up at your lunch period

THE ELECTRIC E STRING WILL WORK GODDAMN IT.
There is absolutly no difference between electric top E and B strings and acoustic ones.
They are identical. From the G-string down it is made of phosphur bronze generally and will give a totally different sound (also because an acoustic g string is wound an electric one isn't)

The gauge is slightly thicker for acoustic generally but that doesn't mean anything!

Use the electric guitar e string and trust me you'll be more than fine. Infact that will be your E string replaced without you having to change it again (until it snaps or is worn out).
